My dear Anna
I left Will’s
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
sword
in the blue parlour with
the case open, intending
to close it and ask
you to take care of it
Will would like our
friends to see it –
Birds and flowers
are abundant here
I wish you were all
here to see them.
But for the shadow
of the war which
falls every where at
Page 2

this time Spring would
be very cheering
in its influence.
In many respects Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

seems better, though
her flush and strength
do not return.
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
is very tired
but well.
I will write to Miss
Howland
Birth: 1827-11-20 Death: 1929-06-29
to have the
little girl
Unknown
ready
if Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
should
come I would like
her to be sent at
that time.
We saw no one in
New York that we

knew – Mr Dana
Birth: 1819-08-08 Death: 1897-10-17
was
very polite and very
amusing. He left
us at the Ferry.
We came in very comfortable
considering the heat – it is
cooler here. Maria
Birth: 1823-07-05 Death: 1896-01-26Certainty: Possible

found her father
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22
at the
wharf. She sent a
telegram from N. York.
You looked pale the
morning we left. I hope
you will be better and
have some rest. Love
to the boys

Mother.
