Wednesday June 1st
My dear Son
Barton Loughborough
Birth: 1821-12-03 Death: 1905-12-24

was here yesterday and
wished me to ask you
if the house you owned
at one time in the
North East part of the
town, either Franklin
or Seymour St, was
sold – or if for sale
what price you had
set upon it. I doubt
whether you will know
now from any previous

estimate. I believe
Barton thinks of taking
it himself.
I received your letter
of Saturday last night
and at the same time
one from Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
of Sunday.
I was glad to hear
even so little of
Will’s
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
movements.
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
continues much
more ill. I have been
with her part of the
day. I think she
would like to consult
Dr Bayard
Birth: 1806-03-05 Death: 1889-09-28
but does
not like to call
him

on Dr Hall’s
Birth: 1818-06-19 Death: 1870-04-28Certainty: Probable
account –
I do not think she
will be able to go to
him. Ask your
father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
if it is not
best for me, or for
him to write to Dr
Bayard to come here.
Aunty sits up part
of the day. Dr Hall
thinks this attack is
increased illness the
effect of cold.
Love to Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
and all.
We shall look for
Jenny with Mr
Pomeroy
Birth: 1824-12-31 Death: 1905-03-23
, but she
said she would

let us know,
Were Nelly
Birth: 1862-09-11 Death: 1921-10-05
well I
know she would
prefer to stay near
to Will.
very affectionately
your Mother.
