Auburn April 13/66
My dear Fred
Will you
ask Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
if he is willing
I should cut down the
Horsechestnut tree that stands in
the path by the dining room window
it darkens the kitchen so that
the girls
Unknown
can hardly see to work
it also shuts off much light
from the dining room.
Ask him also if he had
any objection to having the
dining room grained light
oak, both paper & paint are
much marred. The garden
will be very pretty in a week or
ten days. I hope the Washington
part of the family
x Birth: 1836-03-29  Death: 1919-05-02  Birth: 1844-12-09  Death: 1866-10-29 
will not leave
us to its exclusive enjoyment
this summer
Give my love

I am

as soon as Fannys
health allows.
Remember question about
the cutting down the
chesnut.
He may
soon as he likes best.
