Washington, Dec 10 1863
My dear Fanny
Your Sunday letter has
been a long time on the way, but
it has come at last.
On Monday we dined
the Russians on Tuesday the Russians
dined us, on Wednesday the Secretary
of the Navy
Birth: 1802-07-02 Death: 1878-02-11
supped us, Cabinet
Russians and all.
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
went to New York on
Monday for a week.
Congress is here, and thus far
so well pleased with being here
that it has not began to quarrel
with itself or us.

I am glad to hear that William
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

continues to improve. Col
called last night to inquire about
him, as every body does whom
I meet.
My book drags in the
printing office. It will be
very interesting I think.
Your affectionate father
William H. Seward
