Auburn Aug 18
My dear Son,
We were disappointed
in not seeing you
here both last Saturday
and the Saturday
previous – Since Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

has gone back to Albany
he writes me that
my letter to you
written two weeks
ago still remains at
the office – He and
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
were here a
little over a week
Page 2

before going to Niagara
Fred says he hears that
you have been in Albany
so I persuade myself
that you are well.
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
is to leave Washing-
ton
immediately after
the adjournment — he
proposes to take a
boat of some kind
from Norfolk to
Halifax – for the benefit
of a short voyage
Senator Wade
Birth: 1800-10-27 Death: 1878-03-02
goes
with him – they
return by land about
the 1st of September
Page 3

We are getting along
here about as usual –
The house has been
utterly deranged the
last two weeks by the
gas fitters but is more
orderly now – I was
intending to make Mrs
Cary
Birth: 1787-08-11 Death: 1863-06-22
a visit when I
heard of the illness and
death of her sister Mrs
Stephens
Birth: 1782 Death: 1856
– my visit
is deferred – Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24

and Henry
Birth: 1822-02-03 Death: 1888-11-24
went to
Niagara with a large
party from Canandaigua
Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
& I go to
Syracuse tomorrow or
the next day to look
Page 4

for gas fixtures –
come back the same night —
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
and Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
are
well – The weather
is cool and pleasant –
rain is needed – We
shall look for you every
Saturday until you
come – God bless you –
Mother
