Albany Sept 13th
My dear Mother,
I received your letter
a few day ^since^ and was quite glad to hear
from home as I have not seen any Auburn
paper or any thing from there since I left.
The dinner bell has just rung so I will
finish this after dinner. I have been
down stairs for the last fifteen minutes
trying to eat a piece of Beefstake but
I have given up in dispair and concluded
that Mrs Frinks
Birth: 1825 Death: 1897-12-21
Beefstake is only equaled
in toughness by her temper.
I suppose Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
has written you that
Wm Henry
Birth: 1835-01-09 Death: 1926Certainty: Probable
from Florida is here attending
the Law school he is boarding at the
same house with me, I believe that he
intends staying all winter.
I have been up to see Fred & Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

they are both quite well and
send love; Mrs Wharton
Birth: 1812-10-29 Death: 1889-10-09
has
not yet returned.
We have been quite busy at the Store
since I came back and I have not had
time to see any one else.
You can imagine that I was quite sup-
rised to see Fred walk into the Store
the next morning after I got here; he
is looking much better than I have seen
him in a long time.
You spoke in your letter somthing
about a pair of Pants; I think you
must have made a mistake, it was
a pair of Boots at Lanehearts
I wanted to have Willis
Birth: 1830
get and have
you send them down whenever got
a chance.
Love to Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
& all
Your affectionate son
Will
Tell Fanny that I will
try and write to her this week
