Washington, August 9 1863
My dearest Frances,
Your letter of Thursday
has just reached and relieved me
of anxiety about Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
. The suspense
was painful, for I could scarcely
think of absence from her at this
moment.
I grieve for Mr
Birth: 1817-02-23 Death: 1878-02-28
and Mrs
Birth: 1824 Death: 1881-01-22
Day,
but these consolations must come
from no human hand.
We are suffering utterly from
the heat. Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
will
tell you the news. Just now I find
it hard to steal time to acknowledge your
letter. Your own
Henry.
