Office of the Evening Journal,
Albany, N.Y., May 27 th 185 9
My dear Will,
I return your
checks signed.
If you can sell
another 7 acre lot off the
Burton Farm, so much the
better. The next house can
then be built there instead
of on the bank of the Creek
and if it adjoins Mrs Tubman’s
Birth: 1820 Death: 1913-03-10

it will save part of the cost
of fencing, or rather will divide
it. — Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
says

he intended to have drawn
his pen through the words on
your pass, and that he meant
it to last till July.
How do you come on with
the posting? When you get
leisure, transcribe the “Cash”
page of your ledger and send
it to me. Also a memorandum

I think the New York
or the Hungarian which will
be due in a day or two,
may bring some news of
the Ariel.
Will you see if you have
any pamphlet copies of Father’s
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

two speeches on the Compromise
in 1850, in the Senate (March)
(and July) If you have, send
one of each to
William Denison Dennison Jr
Birth: 1815-11-23 Death: 1882-06-15

Columbus
Ohio

He is a member of the Republican
National Committee, and I
promised to send them to him
Affectionately yours
Frederick
