My dear Mother
I was glad
to receive your letter
last evening. Molly
Birth: 1847
& I
have been alone all
the week — I am very
busy during the day
but when night comes
& Molly goes to bed early
I am very lonely.
Margaret
Unknown
will give
me an answer tomorow
evening. She wants to
go to Auburn, but her
family oppose her.
Her Mother
Unknown
thinks
if she did not get
more wages then she
could in Albany she
had better stay here.

I give her $6. —  she
does the washing.
She would not get
more than $7. in a
large family.
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
write me
the house is overrun
with Committies, Delegations,
& visitors from all over
the North, & the basket
is overflowing with
letters — many of these
from the South.
The Union is the
engrossing topic with
everybody.
I hope
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
will be well
enough to come next
week. I shall
keep a room in order
for her as long as
possible.

I expected to go
to the farm today
to spend Sunday, but
it is a rainy day, I
am afraid they will
not send for us.
Love to all.
Affectionately your
daughter Anna.
