My dear Son
It is three weeks
since you were home and
I have no letter from
you – did I not hear
indirectly I should feel
anxious about your health,
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
writes that you
are about changing your
lodgings – I am sorry
you were obliged to change
as I fear you may
not be so well acommo-
dated again – When
is that dull season
coming at the store

[top Margin] I hope to have the shirts
for you soon

during which you
were to come & see us –
Our family is much
the same that you
left – Miss Dunscomb
Birth: 1841-02-12 Death: 1914-02-05

is at about as agreeable
Fred is away – Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

I am inclined to think
is rather lonely without
him – I hope he will
come back this week
and finish his visit –
Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
was to be
in Albany to day –
Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
has told you
of the French class
she has seceded
and has a small

class at home which
I presume is more
pleasant – Mrs. Masse
Birth: 1828

has come – They are at
the boarding house formerly
occupied by the Bronsons
x Birth: 1792  Death: 1857-06-20  Birth: 1810  Death: 1888-03-16 

I have attended church
for the first time
here – went this
morning – heard a
sermon from Dr. Cressy
Birth: 1811-02-06 Death: 1866

We went through the
garden which shortens
the distance some what –
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
goes to Canandaigua
tomorrow for a visit
of a few days – Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

Anna & Miss Dunscomb
attended a party at

Frances Chesebro’s
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
last
week – Miss Dunscomb
was to have set out for
home yesterday accompanied
by your father but a
letter from home tells her
that her sister has the
smallpox which lengthens
her visit —
I can't tell how much –
It does not seem much
like home here, with
breakfast late, dinner
at 5 &c & &c – You need
not mention this and
may as well burn this
letter – Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
is well
& sends love –
God bless you
Mother
