Sunday June 12h
My dear Son
Will you have
the goodness to address
this letter to Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
.
I had a few lines
from him which came
through the Sanitary
Commission, dated 2
of June. Jennys
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
last
letter which you sent
was two days later.
It is very painful to
think of the dangers
and hardships to which
he is exposed but

while his life is spared
we must not complain.
Nelly
Birth: 1862-09-11 Death: 1921-10-05
is better than
when she came home.
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
continues better
so far but I am con-
tinually expecting a relapse
she finds so much
to do. Catherine
Birth: 1846
is not
with her at present.
I believe she is to return.
Dr Hall
Birth: 1818-06-19 Death: 1870-04-28
thinks Aunty
should not attempt to
travel in the cars.
Should your Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

come to New York
next week I shall
expect him home.
The weather is unnaturally
cool for the season.
Love to Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
& Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

very affectionately
Mother
