Monday.        
March 17th
My dear Mother
I bought some
tea-towels on Saturday. Mr
Dodson
Birth: 1814
is selling out the
stock to close the estate of
Mr Clagget
Birth: 1792 Death: 1860-10-01
who died last
Fall. He has a good assort-
ment of table-linens which
he sells at cost. Shall I bye
some now, & what?
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
& his Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
are so
hurried that I have seldom
an opportunity to speak to
them. They are at the dep t
from 9 till 6. Saturday after-
noon was so warm & pleasant
I went for them at 5 o’C and
induced them to drive before
dinner. We went to see Mrs
Gales
Birth: 1798-12-08 Death: 1878-10-15
. She has been quite
feeble all Winter, has not

been in town since her
husbands
Birth: 1786-04-10 Death: 1860-07-21
death, & has
been confined to her bed
the last month. She came
into the parlor to see us,
but seemed scarcely to have
strength to walk. They are
obliged to give up their
place. Miss Gales
Birth: 1827Certainty: Probable

for a clerkship.
The Adams’
x Birth: 1838-02-16  Death: 1918-03-27  Birth: 1848-06-24  Death: 1927-02-13  Birth: 1845  Death: 1928-08-19  Birth: 1807-08-18  Death: 1886-11-21  Birth: 1808-04-25  Death: 1889-06-06 
left town on
Wednesday. Mrs Adams, does
not intend to come next
year. She says Mary and
Brooks must go to school &
she will have to remain
with them.  I hope Mr
Adams will be sent to
England.
We are looking for
Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
every day.

Fred has just come in ^with^ your
letter. He says the nomina-
tions of Mr Adams & Gen l
Webb
Birth: 1802-02-02 Death: 1884-06-07
went to the Senate
this Morning. I have no
doubt the Genl would like
John
Unknown
to go to Constantinople
with them.
Eliza expects to remain
until we get moved.
The snow is three inches
deep & it is still snowing.
I fear the fruit trees
will be injured – they are
in blossom.
Father & I were attended
a party at Mrs Carrolls
Birth: 1836 Death: 1896

last week – given for Mrs
Thomson
Birth: 1813 Death: 1906-06-03
of N.J. On Saturday
Fred & I dined at Mr Sandfords
Birth: 1823-06-15 Death: 1891-05-21
.
