Albany Nov 1st/58
My dear Mother
Since I returned here
I have thought my matter over pretty thoroughly
and so my prospects appear nearly if not quite
the same in either case, whether I remain with
my present employers, or return with Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
to

course hopeing that it may meet with his approval,
by being with him I shall at least acquire some
knowledge of other business which opportunity is
not afforded me here, in taking this step I hope
I am acting for the best and not in opposition to
Fathers wishes, I should not have written in regard
to this affair so soon, but I think if I accompany
you to Washington I ought at least give Davidson
Birth: 1819-10-22 Death: 1859-06-16

& Viele
Birth: 1823-05-17 Death: 1903-02-19
all possible notice, as yet I have said nothing
to them and thought I would not untill I heard
something from Father or yourself.

left me but the neuralgia still remains although not
as painful as it was at first.

Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
” are quite well and send love.
Your affectionate son
