Editorial Note

June 2, 1861 fell on a Sunday.

My Darling,
I hope it did
not rain all day where
you were as it did here
and all night too, &
continues to rain yet.
Rain was much needed
here, we must not
complain that it has
come – I went to bed
after you left and being
free from pain slept
some refreshing sleep –
To day I am tolerably
well again. – Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

was here all day yes-

-terday until 10 oclock last
night. Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
had
a party of 17, the rain
did not stop them – I
believe it was all pleasant
& satisfactory – She and
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
have gone to dinner
with their friends at
Mrs Pomeroy’s
Birth: 1835-09-04 Death: 1892-02-25
to day
I did not inquire who
was here but believe
only family connexion
or indeed only relatives
There was abundance
of Ice cream & strawberries
left. – They had cake
& coffee – only part of
the “Brides loaf” was eaten
the rest has gone “home”
again –

Aunty helped Ann
Unknown
set the
table as I could not –
About 10 yesterday a telegram
came from Harriet Weed
Birth: 1819-02-06 Death: 1893-11-01

saying we must all come
there – To day I have a
letter urging the same –
I think if I am well
enough after the 4th to
travel I will meet you
there Friday or if you
will stay over Sunday
I will perhaps go on
Saturday – You will do
as Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
wishes –
But do not fail to go
as Harriet will be disap-
-pointed if you do not.
I shall look for a letter
tomorrow telling me of
your journey – I had
Page 4

ample time to think of
you all night –not
sleeping well – was up
at 5 this morning – the
girls did not get up till
almost 7 as they were up
late last night I did
not call them – Calamity
continues to pursue me
every where – Aunty is not
well & will not come down
to day in the rain – I
have written 2 letters before
this – my writing shows
that my hand is tired.
Give my love to Aunt Clary
and Miss Hone
Certainty: Possible
– I hope
they are enjoying their visit
Kind remembrances to Mrs
Perry
Birth: 1819-10-04 Death: 1898-02-12
& her family
x Birth: 1847  Death:   Birth: 1844-09-14  Death: 1920-04-14  Birth: 1817-07-08  Death: 1886-01-29 
also
nothing further from Washington
God bless & keep you
my precious child
Mother
