Washington March 9th
My dear Clara
I meant to have
sent you Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
letter
before but there is so much
going on here continually
that it escaped my mind –
Green
Unknown
and his wife
Unknown
have
just been here to say good
bye – they go this afternoon
to Philadelphia on their way
to BuffaloFrances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
thinks
she will set out Wednesday
She is to go as far as Phil-
adelphia with Dr Morgan
Unknown

She has written to her mother
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

I suppose when she will
be at Auburn – I am
sorry the weather is not

more pleasant – it is
snowing to day – Mary
Grier
Birth: 1839-09-05 Death: 1930-06-04
waits for permission
from home to go with some
one beside Henry Seward
Birth: 1839-03-19 Death: 1862-01-23

should he be detained
much longer – If Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

does not wait for us
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
will come for her
or meet her on the
way – It will be lonely
when they are all gone
I shall employ myself
in making preparations to
go too – I want to see
you all very much –
I suppose from Augustus
letter that he will not
leave Key West before May –
I am glad to hear Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

Lazette Blackmar
Birth: 1821 Death: 1870-03-04
this
week telling me
of the death of Uncle
Lewis
Birth: 1787-06-11 Death: 1857-02-14
– I always thought
I should see Uncle Lewis
again in this World –
but it makes very little
difference really – the
two worlds, Present & Future,
are not far apart – Lazette
seems to feel very much
alone since the death of
her Father – Did you see
the notice of his death
in the Evening Journal
of Friday. I am sorry
to hear Maria
Birth: 1824 Death: 1858-12
is not
so well – Will you let
her have money to make
her comfortable when she

me sick which must
be my apology for
a dull letter to day
