Hudson, Wis
Oct 1, 1856
My Dear Henry
I thank you for your favor
of the 16th Sepbre , I regret much to
learn of the impaired state of your
health so much so that a voyage
at sea is considered indespensable
to its recovery and that your affairs
at home forbear that recourse
I cannot know of this without
tendering you my feeble aid in
carrying out so necessary an object
yet I do not know that it is
needed, it is however sincerely
and affectionately made and will
be complied with as soon as I
am informed by what method
and in what direction it can
be done.
We intend to leave this place
for Oswego, Kendall co Ill

Editorial Note

Monday was the 13th in 1856
visit, by the 16th
we shall be there where I shall
be happy to hear from you in
reference to it,
Since I have been in this
place I have had the pleasure
of meeting Mr Washburn
Birth: 1818-04-22 Death: 1882-05-15
of this
district and of hearing him speak
He is not a brilliant or eloquent
speaker, but I suppose a man
of good common sense, intelligent
well practice in political matters
He will make a good run of
it in this county.
A mass meeting of 1000 people
has been held here (which for this
county was a great turnout
) Mr Washburn and Allison
Unknown
? Gov Ramsey
Birth: 1815-09-08 Death: 1903-04-22

and Mr Wilkinson
Birth: 1819-01-22 Death: 1894-02-04
of St Paul ad-
dressed the meeting and a good
time we had of it.
I must close my letter [ hear ]
