Editorial Note

The archivist has marked this letter as William Henry Seward to Frances Adeline Seward, however, based on the salutation and context of the letter it is from William Henry Seward to Frances Miller Seward.
Department of State
Washington, Dec 16 1863
My dearest Frances,
I have your letter of
Saturday and I trust that Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

has by this time surmounted the
throat disease which confined her
so uncomfortably when the letter
was written.
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
has not yet returned
Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
goes for her on Friday.
I am looking out to be at home
about Christmas—when I hope
to find you all much better.
your own
Henry,
