Niagara Falls
Saturday morning
9 oclock –
My precious child
I came here very
ill at 11 oclock last night
having been on the way
9 hours – 3 hours more
that the capacity of my
nerves allow – Dear
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
watched with me
until 1 oclock and
then crept quietly in by
my side – She and
Cousin Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
undressed
me and assisted me
to bed as soon as Mrs
Wharton
Birth: 1808-02-07 Death: 1868-09-09
had helped me

up stairs – I am much
better this morning &
think the air which
is softer than yesterday
will quite restore me –
In the mean time my
darling I am thinking of
you continually – The
Napiers
x Birth: 1819-09-19  Death: 1898-12-19  Birth: 1808-02-07  Death: 1868-09-09 
are yet unreconciled
to your staying at home
& hope as we all do
that you may possibly
come on with Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
to
day – Anna seems to
think it doubtful whether
Fred comes – I will
tell you ^some of^ the many
pleasant things I hear
said of you when I
come home Monday

& will write more, again,
in the course of the
day some directions
God bless you
Mother
Love to Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
