Albany Sept 16th
My dear Mother,
I am about once more
to change my boarding place as I find that
the board here does not agree with me; I have
already been sick twice from the effects of
eating spoiled food and the last time it
has kept me away from the store nearly a
week although I am quite well now; and
went to work again to day; I have concluded
that I had better pay the money which I now
pay the Doctor
Unknown
and get a little ^better^ board. I am
now going to board with a Widow
Unknown
livg up in
Broadway and if things are half as nice as they
look to be (and boarders say they are) it must
be a very nice place. There are two of our old
boarders
Unknown
gone up there and like very much.
Wm Henry

is also going there with me.
I find that I shall have to get a few things in
the way of furniture which I can hardly spare
the money to get and if you could let me

have ten or fifteen dollars I should
like it very much; if I ever have
any money I will try and return it but
I think it very doubtful. I should not
have asked for this if it had not been that I
have been away from the store so much this
month that I have not hardly drawen any
pay while my expenses keep on here just
the same. I would rather you would not
say anything to Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
about it and if
it is not convenient it will not make
much matter — perhaps I can get along
without it.
Love to all
Your affectionate son
Will
