My dear Child
I have your letter
of yesterday — I will
meet you either at
Canandaigua or Geneva
next week if you
prefer to stay — I
should hardly be
able to go this — I have
a letter from your father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

saying he should send
soon for you to come
to Washington — I would
rather that were deferred
for 2 months, which
Page 2

I have written to him —
We can arrange this
when you come home
I hope Mrs Ayrault
Birth: 1810-04-07 Death: 1899-08-07

will not weary of
your prolonged visit.
I am very sorry you
have not seen Mrs
Huson
Birth: 1825 Death: 1898
who is suffering
so much — it seems
unfeeling — and you
know we are told
to avoid even the
"appearance of evil" —
I have been to see Aunt
Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
to day she is
very lonely without
Kate
Birth: 1837 Death: 1878-04-08
& the baby
Birth: 1860 Death: 1939

Catherine came to bid
me good bye, was
feeling much depressed –
She left a kiss for you
I have a letter for
Eliza & one for you —
I am interrupted
by a visitor & must
close for the mail
Love to your friends
and 2 or 3 kisses
for yourself
God preserve my
darling —
Mother —
