a day or two previous

about completed – she
has not succeeded in

seeing Mr Brown

yet – Dennis
Birth: 1827
came
from the midden
Thursday having com-
pleted that work –
I gave him a check
of $52 to pay the men –
As the gas is to be
brought into the house
this week and some
other things to be done
which will require
some attention from
me I have deferred
my visit to Mrs
Cary
Birth: 1787-08-11 Death: 1863-06-22
until next
week – We had
a fine shower last

night – the
day is cool & pleasant –
The last of the lillies
(the Tiger) are now
in flower – you will
miss them all –
Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
writes that
his assistant
Unknown
is sick
and he will not be
able to come home
to stay more than
one day at present –
I shall feel greatly
relieved when you
can get away from
Washington – it is
now two weeks to
the adjournment –
Your own Frances
