Office of the Evening Journal,
Albany, N.Y., May 22d 1857
My dear Father,
I have your
letter of yesterday, and I very
gladly avail myself of your
kindness. Enclosed is my note
for $2500. It will enable
me to get along with my
other paper very comfortably.
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
has changed his quarters
to the American Hotel, which
reopens under new proprietors
Unknown
this
week. He will have better board
and a better room there for $6
a week, than at any private
boarding house for $7. —
Mr Baker
Birth: 1816-03-16 Death: 1887-10-02
, I think, would

like to take him, but I suspect
the difficulty is with Mrs Baker
Birth: 1817-09-21 Death: 1903-02-09
,
who having just parted with her
former boarders is unwilling to
receive new ones. Wilkeson
Birth: 1817-05-09 Death: 1889-12-02
suggests
Dr. Mayo
Birth: 1823-01-31 Death: 1907-04-08
, the Republican, Unitarian
clergyman, I have seen him
and find he will willingly take
Will to live with him, but he
is poor and has only an
unfurnished third story room to
offer him. Furnishing the room
can easily be got over, and in
some respects the place has great
advantages. Will is going to look at
it.
Affectionately your son
Frederick
