Albany Feb. 15th
My dear Father,
Do not put
yourself to any inconvenience
on account of the Burgesses.
They do not expect to be
received in the house, only
to call you out on the
stoop & present arms. If
you are not at home they
will give the house a
passing salute. – They
adopted the project of

G. Street from the cars,

on the President
Birth: 1804-11-23 Death: 1869-10-08
or President
Elect.
Birth: 1791-04-23 Death: 1868-06-01

The Legislature is well disposed
and in the main judicious.
It looks as if they would
get through without making
trouble for themselves or the
party, unless Buffalo and
Oswego succeed in setting

Town Meetings, so far, do not
look well. The Know Nothings
have transferred their strength
to the Democrats in most of
the Counties so far, and so
beaten us.
Affectionately your son
Frederick
