Monday Jan 8t
My dear Anna
Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
has finally
decided to go with
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
—they leave here
Thursday and may
be in Washington
Saturday night
but probably not
until Satu Monday.
As Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
will
have to give them
his room, I would
suggest that there
be a fire made
Page 2

in the 4th story room
before he occupies it
as the change may
bring back his
cough— I do not
think the little stove
will be needed in
Jenny's room—I wish
I were there to help
you in these arrangements
but the time of my
coming is somewhat
uncertain, depending
upon Aunty's
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
health,
and attendants –
You have many
compliments, dear
Anna, on your
Page 3

graceful manner of
entertaining company
which as they are
well merited, may
give you pleasure—
they certainly do
me—
I am truly thankful
that you have all
been preserved from
illness this Winter
and trust that
God may continue
to bless you all
very affectionately
Mother—
