My dear Sarah
I have sent
your letter to Mr
Seward
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
, it was so
excellent, giving such
a clear statement of
your wishes, that I
knew I could write
nothing so good – I
know it will give
Mr Seward great
pleasure to do any thing
in his power to assist
your brother
Birth: 1818-09-16 Death: 1909-03-11Certainty: Possible
in
getting such a situation
as you describe
When I hear from

I will write again –

is so
much better that I
think I can leave
her for a few weeks
& shall probably go
to Washington the
first of March.
I have many interesting
letters from Fanny

well – She is enjoying

left for
Washington – William to
join his Regt. His
indifferent health gives

us much anxiety –
We all hope the war is
drawing to a close,
when such of our young
men as are left alive
can rejoin their families.
It was hard to have
the attempt to liberate
the Richmond prisoners
fail –
Mrs Worden sends love –
Mrs Chesebro

New York with Frank
