My Dear Son,
I am glad to find
by your letter that there
is a post office at Castleton
having already sent
two letters to Albany
which do not reach
you – We have looked
for you home every
Saturday for three weeks
past – The call for an
extra session of Congress
by the President
Birth: 1804-11-23 Death: 1869-10-08
has
deranged your fathers
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

which he was to make
by sea to Halifax – he
was to have gone in a
schooner from Baltimore
Tuesday – Judge Wade
Birth: 1800-10-27 Death: 1878-03-02

to go with him – and
Lewis
Unknown
for cook and
waiter – I hope yet
they may adjourn in
time for him to go – it
will do him good –
Fred

and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

From Niagara by the
Central road –
We do not hear from
Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
yet –
