Albany May 6th/57
My dear Mother
I arrived here safe
last night and went up to Congress Hall
where I got my supper and a Room.
then I went around to see Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
& Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

I found them all very well.
This morning I went out to hunt up
a Boarding House. Fred & Mr Wharton
Birth: 1808-02-07 Death: 1868-09-09

both recommended the Franklin House
as the best place. I went to six or eight
different places and found that I could
not get board & Room less than $9 or 10
afterwards I went to the Franklin where
I can get good board for 4h & Room &
Room for -$7, so every thing is very com-
-fortable although themy Room is not as
good as it might be. Love to all.
I will write agane soon.
Your affectionate Son
Will.
P.S. My Room is in
the fith story and faces State St
