My dear Son
Your Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
and
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
left here Monday
evening intending to go
to Baltimore that night
the next day to New
York
. I think it
was somewhat uncertain
whether your Father
would go any further
though he talked of
going to Auburn.
Charlotte Conway
Birth: 1830
wishes
me to ask you to see
Mr Mungar
Birth: 1803-06-13 Death: 1869-04-15
& obtain
from him receipts
for the money due
for the house and lot.

Reason: 

them here as he said
he would—at least
so she understood him[ . ]

Supplied

Reason: 

There is due Charlotte
Conway $200 with
interest from last
October.
To Elizabeth Washington
Unknown

(Elmira N.Y.) $75 —
To William Newark
Unknown

$50 –
William lives in
New Haven and would
prefer the money
(not a receipt) should
be sent there to him.

It is best that they
should all have some
security for the payment
of these sums, as
is always customary.
Mr Morgan's good
intention would
not suffice in
the event of his death.
I will write to Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

to day.
Love to all,
God bless you
Mother

For Will.
