My dear Son
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
wishes me
to write to you in behalf
of her neighbour Mr
Barber
Birth: 1814 Death: 1897
. Can any
thing be done to expe-
dite the payment.
Mr Barber has had
6 of his family ill
with typhoid fever
this summer and
says he is sadly in
need of the money
You will see that
4 months have passed
since this reply to

his application.
Please return this
paper to me.
Aunty is quite unwell
to day – Erysipelas in
the face and head
mu much less violent
than those attacks
which your father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

used to have but
still enough inflam-
mation to make
her uncomfortable
and me anxious.
I was with her this
morning and shall
go again tomorrow
Harriet
 Death: 1888-08-20

to night.
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
came back from
Rochester to day – she
and Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
think
to set out for Washing-
ton
next Wednesday.
Our reports leave us
in some doubt about
the Pennsylvania election
though Ohio & Indiana
are sure. Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09

hears frequently from
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
. I have to day
the letter to your
father which I am
glad to see.
Love to Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
.
your affectionate
Mother.
