Albany, Dec. 2d,
My dear Father,
Here is
what Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
writes me. I
thought of advising him to
take the lower rate of compen-
sation, and in return stipulate
that he should not be
compelled to work except
during ordinary business hours.
Shall I do this, or
Page 2

shall I try, with Mr School-
craft's
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
help, to get him a
place in Davidson's
Birth: 1819-10-22 Death: 1859-06-16
Hardware
Store here? Or shall I
offer him a nominal place
in the Journal Office. I would
gladly have him here, but
I think keeping or collecting
accounts, collecting news items,
or reporting, would all prove
more irksome to him than
work about a store, and
we have nothing else to
offer him.
I want to advise him to
do whichever will be best
for himself, and in order

to do so, want you to advise
me.
Affectionately your son
Frederick
