My dear Son,
It seems more
than two weeks since
I went away and
left you here – I
was sorry not to
see Mr Corning

& do not yet learn
what he thought
of Mr Barnes
Birth: 1824 Death: 1867
store –
I presume you found
no time to say
any thing to
Page 2

your Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
about
going to Washington
I do not know
when he will be
in Albany again
but some time before
he goes to Washington.
Were it not for
the requisitions
made upon him before
election I think
he would go next
week, but I judge
now he has much
more than he can

well do planned
for him by others –
We had a pleasant
excursion to Niagara
& are now enjoying
a delightful Indian
Summer which I
hope may be p l prolonged
some days –

at Mrs Watsons

of
Lucy Hamilton
Birth: 1841-12-07 Death: 1898-01-21

Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09

to be homesick – I

I think I shall be
a day in Albany
at least – This after-
noon Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

going to quilt for
Kate
