Auburn Jan 15th – Friday
My dear Henry
As I have heard nothing from
Washington later than Monday I infer
that Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is somewhere on the
way home – I hope she is well –
Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
and Frank
Birth: 1854-02 Death: 1931-05-23
came over Tuesday
expecting to meet her here – They
returned Wednesday – The weather is
delightful – I can hardly expect it
to continue so until our journey com-
mences – I am making my arrangements
to leave home next Tuesday – Should
we both keep well we shall reach
Washington Friday or Saturday – Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

writes that he will be ready to accompany
me – Your letter with Mr Neyharts
Birth: 1821 Death: 1885-11-20

check came safely – his account is
settled for the present –

Our domestic affairs keep the even
tenor of their way – Nep
Birth: 1856 Death: 1859
has brought
us another stray dog for whom Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

is engaged seekn seeking a home –
William Brown
Unknown
was found with his
family
Unknown
having been there secreted two
or three weeks – is now in jail –
I do not see that I can do better
than to leave Willis
Birth: 1830
with the care of
the house – affecting a confidence I do
not feel – I will ask Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
to
visit the premises as often as he can –
Should the weather keep mild & Lazette
well she will I presume come up very
often – perhaps stay here a portion of her
time – I will write again – Fanny
sends love – your own
Frances –
