Florida June 28th 1856
My Dear Henry
Your favor of the 18th
visit was received several days
since, we have been delayed in
making necessary preparations
in starting on our jaunt, but when
this letter leaves we leave this place
I thank you for your letter for
while it corrected some of my own
views, it confirmed others,
I think however I may be allow-
ed to speak more on it for Fremont
Birth: 1813-01-21 Death: 1890-07-13

than under some circumstances
I shall however be provident
The delay to which we have been
subjected and other circumstances
will induce us to go on more
directly than at first we planned
Page 2

We shall make but a short stay at
Julia’s
Birth: 1824-02-11 Death: 1895
old home and then on to
Allegany Co we give up with some
reluctance going to Auburn but
but shall return that way we are
the more induce to take that
course presupposing that then
you will be at home, we hope
that this will be agreeable to
yourself,
If you would be Kind enough
to write you may direct to
Oswego, Ill.
Affectionately Your
Brother
Geo. W. Seward
