1 Hanover Street New York: Dec 6. 1856.
My dear uncle,
Inclosed are a couple of calcu-
lations upon your Bond: one at com-
pound and the other at Merchant’s
interest and by the latter you have
overpaid something like 6000$. By
the former you are short 900$. The
first receipt inclosed to you was
made by my clerk
Unknown
who was formerly
a Book Keeper in the hudson and
West Minster Branch Bank and was
made as he says in the same man-
ner as it would have been made at
the Bank.
Your letter was delivered by Dr
Young
Birth: 1827 Death: 1902-06-23Certainty: Probable
yesterday and after a patient
hearing of his case I was reluctantly
compelled to advise him that he was
attempting to patent the application of
an old device to what he thought
was a new, but in reality to an old
purpose, and that he could not get
a patent and if he could it would
be worthless
I hear nothing yet from either

My friends the Stoughtons
x Birth: 1821  Death: 1904-12-03  Birth: 1818-05-01  Death: 1882-01-07 
want to get
their Nephew
Birth: 1838-06-23 Death: 1868-12-25
down from West Point
to spend Christmas. But leave of absence
for such purpose is akin to that “Kissing”
which “goes by favor” and the Cadet is
gloomy. I would like to oblige them. Is
the inclosed letter an improper one for
you to sign and if not will you sign
it and let it take its chance.
Ever gratefully
Your Nephew
Clarence A. Seward
The Honorable
William H. Seward
