I am very glad you
find your new lodgings
more comfortable — I have
never felt satisfied
since I saw Frinks
Birth: 1815

house on the outside —
Do not fail to come
home if you get sick
again — I shall be
continually uneasy about
you if you do not
let me know when you
are sick — We are having
rather dull weather
just now — so wet
that I cannot go in the
garden — Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
and
Mr Patty
Birth: 1808 Death: 1876-12-11

has
entirely recovered — Caroline

wrote me that he was
better – I am glad
to hear that Fred

keeps well, as I learn
that he does indirectly —
When are some of
you coming home –
I had your stove
put up yesterday —
I enclose $10 —
God bless you
Mother –
