My dear Mother
I have been up this

Wharton
Birth: 1812-10-29 Death: 1889-10-09
who is all alone, as
Mr Wharton
Birth: 1808-02-07 Death: 1868-09-09
is out in the country
I believe he is coming back again
to night, she asked a great
deal about Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

Reason: 
day before
yesterday and they had had a
letter from Mr Wilkison
Birth: 1817-05-09 Death: 1889-12-02
saying
that he was better, if he comes
back soon I suppose Fred will
not come down in some time yet
I should think he could just
as well stay a month or two as
not and it would do him good
How does Aunt >yies
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
house come on
I should think it must be most
finished by this time.
I should like very much
