Albany Nov 15
My dear Mother
I have forgotten
whither I wrote to you the Apples had
come, they arrived safely nearly two
weeks ago, I have not opened them
yet; because I thought it would be
better to let them stay untill I was ready
to use them and untill they have
ripened a little more, I suppose
that It will do them no harm to
remain in the barrels.
I am sorry to hear that you
have had another fire in Auburn
and more so because when a building
burns down they seldom replace it

There is nothing doing here
in Albany and business is very
dull indeed.
I took dinner day before
yesterday at the Delavan with
Theo Pomeroy
Birth: 1824-12-31 Death: 1905-03-23
, he is the first person
from Auburn who I have seen
since I came back.
I went up this evening to see
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
I saw Fred but
Anna and Mrs Wharton
Birth: 1812-10-29 Death: 1889-10-09
have gone
down to New York.
Love to Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

and
all the rest.
Your affectionate son
Will
