fellow

had just got in on the eight oclock
train and were very hot and dusty
Mrs Wharton told me that you
had been sick for the last few days

day
before yesterday and he said that
he did not expect Fred down in
some time yet, so I suppose he
will not be very likely to come
very soon.
It has been very warm here for
the last few days and to day
it is too warm to do any thin[ g ]

Birth: 1811 Death: 1882
