Auburn Aug 5 th
My dear Mother
I suppose you
are spending the day pleasantly
with Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
, It has seemed quite
lonely at the house since you
& Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
have been away.
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
starts for Albany tomorrow
morning — but whether he goes to
Tarrytown or not I do not know
Mac
Birth: 1839-06-14 Death: 1914-05-24
& I have had some conversations
with him in regard to our business
& he has nearly decided to start
us in a most favorable manner
I am very anxious that the
arrangement should be made as
there is every prospect that it would
succeed.
Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
is quite well and
sends much love to you & Fanny
We spent the evening at Troop Martins
