Auburn July 16
Dearest Fred
I was made very happy by
your kind letter of the 11th Which I
received yesterday. My surprise
and joy on again seeing your
handwriting was only equalled
by my thankfulness that you were
once more able to hold a pen.
I shall Ever esteem it one of the
greatest Evidences of your affection-
ate attention to me that your
first letter was written to promote
my happiness. I thank you and
dear Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
for your invitation
to join you at Cape May. Which
I accept because I fear you may
not come North this summer as
I have hoped you would. My

inclination just now is to remain
in my own quiet home and
nothing but the prospect of meeting
you & dear Anna could tempt me
from it. My little place
is gay

gay

Excited with merriment or delight • Having many or showy colors • An ornament •
and attractive with
flowers and verdure. All remin-
ding me of yours and Anna's at-
tention to it in its Earlier days.
We are glad to hear of your
father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
's daily improvement & of
his release from that terrible
framework. Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
is daily
gaining strength - last night
she took tea with the family
& today she has been out for
a long drive. With much
love to dear Anna & Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

I am very affectionately
Your
