Wednesday March 20
My dear Son
I wish I could
write you in one letter
without troubling you
about offices –
Did I mention the
application of Mrs Pitneys
Birth: 1797-12-04 Death: 1862-05-06

son James Trask
Birth: 1825
of
San Francisco – for a
place in the Custom House
or any thing else – Mr
Latham
Birth: 1827-05-23 Death: 1882-03-04
to be applied to
for any reference needed –
You perhaps read the
letter of Mrs Brown
Birth: 1820 Death: 1886-07-06

(Margaret Bullions)

of Buffalo – her husband
Birth: 1811

applies for the Deputy
Collectorship of New York
or any on thing else
connected with his
profession in New York –
She does not write
his name or profession
assuming that we all
know –
I hope Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893

is safe in Washington
we have had intensely
cold weather since
he left – To day
it is milder –
Love to Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

God bless you
Mother
