Albany June 14
My dear Mother
I arrived here
safe monday morning and was
already to go to work when the Store
opened. I hope Willis
Birth: 1830
got back
home safe that night for I shall
want him to take me over again if
he did. It is quite a nice way of
coming up and spending sunday
and not loseing any time, and I
think if Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
could prevail on
Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
to get me a ticket
I could come up quite oftain.
I was very much surprised to see
Gus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
here the other day I supposed
he would not be home in two or three
weeks, he is going to make quite
a long stay at Auburn this time
so he told me

This morning I went to St Peters
Curch the first time I have
been since I came, who do you
think we had to preach for us? no less
a person than Dr Cressy
Birth: 1811-02-06 Death: 1866
from
Auburn. I saw Annie
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
in Curch
she said Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
was not very well
to day I think I shall go up there
this evening.
I have just been up to
Mr Schoolcraft’s and for once I
found Carrie
Birth: 1834-07-25 Death: 1922-02-28
at home I staid
an hour or so and had a very
pleasant call. I have been up
to Freds and found that is better

Supplied

Reason: 
all be up this
week, he tells me that Father
talks of goin off on a fishing ex-
cursion somewhere, I should think
it would do him much good if he
could go. I am afraid that
I shall have to stop writing, my
Gas Lamp acts so badly that I

have had to put it out
and my Candle does not
give enough light for me to
write by. Tell Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
that I
received her letter and will answer
it as soon as I can get time
Love to all
Your affectionate Son
Will
