My dear Son
I have just heard
this morning that you
were ill when your
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
left Washington.
I was thinking how soon
it would be possible
for me to go to you
when Fredericks
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
two
telegrams of Saturday
and Sunday both came
at one the time, saying
you were better —
well — I am very
thankful for this –

is much as he
was yesterday his fever
still continues
and every day shows
more clear indications
that it has assumed
a typhoid character –
I believe all the physicians
agree in this now –
They say his fever has
not yet passed the crisis
and until that time
he cannot be out
of danger – Horatio
Robinson
Birth: 1830-06-24 Death: 1891-04-27
stayed with
him again last night.
Our folks came about
8 in the evening –
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
was so tired that

she has not yet taken
her breakfast 10 oclock –
It is the day before election
of course your father
is beset by politicians
to make a speech
I hope he will not.
Love to Fred & Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

God bless you all
Mother –
