Tuesday August 12th-
My dear Henry
On the other page you will
find a drawing of Lazette’s
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
house which
I copied from Fred’s
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
Mr Brown
Birth: 1805-04-19 Death: 1886-01-20
&
Vantuyl
Birth: 1812 Death: 1876
object so strenuously to stone
and assign so many reasons that
we have concluded upon brick. Of
course the drawing gives rather an imperfect
idea of the effect – I sent Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
to
Albany for Mrs Wharton
Birth: 1812-10-29 Death: 1889-10-09
to save Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
strength
and time – Fred being recalled will
leave them at Niagara when they
all meet to day –
Should there be room in your trunk
I wish you would bring Fanny’s
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
large shawl
which was left accidentally when we
came, in her room – You have but
four days more – I shall be troubled about
you, at sea, but know it will do you good
May God preserve you your own
Frances

There is a sketch of a house on the top half of the page.
These chimneys are supposed to be ornamental
which no one would suspect from my
drawing – that which appears on the
point of the gable is to be in the
center of that part of the house
material brick –
