Auburn Monday Jan 11th
My dear Son,
I have waited some days
before writing to your or Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

that I might say something positive
about coming down – I wrote to Fred
that Mr
Birth: 1822 Death: 1896
& Mrs Mellen
Birth: 1830 Death: 1902
were to be
in Washington the 25t –. I have this
morning a letter from Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
and
also from Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
, containing advice
about the journey – Aunty is not
willing to remain any longer and
leaves Washington to day with Mr
Green
Unknown
as an escort to New York
I hope she will not fail to give
you & Fred notice when she will
be in Albany. She had better
remain there over night as the
journey from N. York to Auburn

is too long for her to accomplish
in one day – In reference to my escort
Father writes – "Mr McClallen
Birth: 1791-09-07 Death: 1860-11-16
will
find some one who will see you and
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
safely through to Albany – It is
a dull time in stores & Mr Davidson
Birth: 1819-10-22 Death: 1859-06-16

will cheerfully and approvingly give
William leave to attend you to
Washington" – I will add that
there can be no impropriety in your leaving
at this time if your pay is stopped
which suggestion you will of course
make – Let me know your
decision as soon as you can conveniently.
I propose going to Albany Tuesday of
next week – I hope you will see
Aunty as she passes through – Let Fred
see this letter or tell him its contents
Love to him & Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
– God bless you
Mother –
