Auburn Sunday 27th July
My dear Son,
It is two weeks since
you left us, much of which
has been pretty much warm summer
weather – the grass in our
meadow is nearly cut at and
a part of it made into a
large stack to await more
profitable market - Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

writes that there has been exceeding-
ly hot weather in Washington
we are all glad that the day
of adjournment is at length
fixed – Mr Greeley’s
Birth: 1811-02-03 Death: 1872-11-29
tactics
do not seem to be very
successful - I think it is about
time that Northern men should
have courage enough to adhere
Page 2

to peace principles which lead
to a course of conduct more
in union with their education
and certainly more becoming –
I ride out frequently and
am better than when you were
home – Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is talking
of making Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
a short visit
taking Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
with her –
I have not heard from Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

this week except by Mr Mc-
Clallen
Birth: 1791-09-07 Death: 1860-11-16
who saw him a few
moments in passing through Albany
on his return from N. York -
Mr

Clara
Miller

and Harry Miller

made Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
a visit
last week – they were all
sorry you had left before
they came – I enclose this
letter to Fred as I am
Page 3

not quite sure where to address it –
We shall look for you home
next month to make us a
longer visit than you did before –
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
, begins to talk of going
West to seek his fortune –
it may not be unwise by & by –
Amanda Schooley
Birth: 1842-02-01 Death: 1916-05-13
is staying with
Fanny – Aunty and Fanny send
love – God bless you
