Auburn Sep 8th 1856
My dear Son,
Your letter of Thursday
containing that from Judge Conckling
Birth: 1789-10-12 Death: 1874-02-05

came the next day — Did you write
any answer to him — I do not well
see how you could — I tell Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

that she should answer the letter —
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
came home Tuesday evening
very tired and half sick – since
his return he has been constantly
occupied with business here and
is trying to get through to go abroad
before it is too late—He expected
Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
to come up with him but
Fred could not leave Mr Wilkeson
Birth: 1817-05-09 Death: 1889-12-02

being absent — we are looking for
him every day — Aunty's house
is going on — the neighbours
Unknown
are
very troublesome —The weather
is much warmer now that it was
when you were with us

Monday evening
Fred and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
came this
evening — they were on the train
which met with the accident
this morning — providentially escaped
injury — the car in which they
were was destroyed or materially
injured— it was the second passenger
car — that from which the brakeman
Unknown

was thrown and instantly killed —
Father thinks he will go in the
Persia the 17th —Cant you come
home this week – I think Fred
and Anna will stay until Father
goes —
God bless you
Mother —
