Office of the Evening Journal,
Albany, N.Y., March 26th 1857
My dear Father,
Your note at
the Commercial falls due tomorrow
instead of the 24th, as you supposed.
I will attend to its renewal.
I am afraid I
have given you unnecessary trouble
by asking you a while ago
for a loan of $1200 on my
note at three years. I find
I can easily manage to meet
my notes by paying in part
and renewing in part, and
shall only have to ask an
occasional endorsement from you
for the purpose of such renewal.

So please destroy the note I
I sent you, and give yourself no
trouble about it.
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
got home safely on
Monday. I wish it was
possible for you and Mother
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21

to come home through Pennsyl-
vania
with the carriage and
horses, as you talked of doing.
The journey would do you both
good, unless the roads are so
bad as to prevent it.
Affectionately your son,
Frederick.
