Sunday Evening.
My dear Mother.
I arrived last
night. Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
went to
Philadelphia with a special
message to Mr Lincoln
Birth: 1809-02-12 Death: 1865-04-15
&
then met me in New-York.
Your letter came this
morning. I am sorry you
have been anxious about
me. I am quite well, but
very tired. The few lines
I wrote you as I was
leaving the house on
Thursday you must have
received before this. & I
did write you a week

or less previous.
I rrecollect that Margaret
Unknown

took the letter to the
Post-office and never having
sent her before I fear
she did not put it in
the Letter-box.
I wrote you in the letter
you did not receive that
Margaret had concluded
she could not leave
Albany & had engaged
in place. She left me
three days before I closed
the house - which was
a great inconveniance to
me.
The servants here are
very glad to see me.

much interrupted by
visitors.

President- elect
Birth: 1809-08-27 Death: 1891-07-04

Mr Lincoln went to church
with us this Morning.

Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07

Birth: 1817-08-27 Death: 1901-06-12

Birth: 1802-09-27 Death: 1878-12-20

Tomorrow I commence
house-hunting.
Love to all.
Affectionately your daughter
Anna.
