My dearest Jenny
Your letter of the 11th
was recd yesterday and also one from
from mother
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
four days later telling
me of Mrs Curtis
 Death: 1864Certainty: Probable
death at the
house. I really hope that so many
causes of excitement will not act unfavor-
ably on your health but I can hardly
see how it can be otherwise. I shall
be thankful if your mother
Birth: 1812-03-30 Death: 1893-11-13
does not give
out with so much additional care on her hands
nothing new here
Your Will
