My Dear Son
I was glad to get
your letter – also the
photographs which are
much better than first
though still defective about
the eye. Will you in June
or July send the enclosed
letter to Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
, when there
is an opportunity. We hear
nothing of him once he
was at Washington.
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is not quite so
well this week.
The weather is fine so that

she goes out every day.
We are expecting your
visit in June – do
you go to the Army
first? Our place is
very pretty now there is
such an abundance of
flowers. Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
has not
had any rides on horseback
yet — it is difficult
to get a gentle horse
Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
intends to come o to
her mothers while you
are here – she will bring Frank
Birth: 1854-02 Death: 1931-05-23

then – it is a long time since
I have seen him. Aunty &
Fanny send love– God
bless you my son
your mother
