My dear Son
We have no word
from William
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
since
he left and it is
yet longer since we
have heard from
you. You may
have gone on the
contemplated excursion.
You sent home
many copies of the
diplomatic correspondence.
What binding shall
I reserve for you.
Will and Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
have
each the first vol.
in green & gold
Page 2

there are two setts of
the 2d bound in
the same manner
but I will not
give these out until
you tell me which
you prefer, or of
which you have the
1st vol. I was
confined to my
bed part of last
week – am better
to day & hope to
be about house
this week. I hope
your Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
keeps
well. Love to
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
& Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

God bless all
Mother.
