Newport, Thursday
My dear Father,
This is your day
for diplomatic visits, but I think
you can hardly have a quorum of
the Corps at Washington, three
quarters of them being here.
Last night Mr Phelps
Birth: 1779-09-08 Death: 1873-02-24Certainty: Possible
and
Mr Russell
Birth: 1820-03-28 Death: 1907-02-11Certainty: Possible
, of New York, and
Baron Grabow
Birth: 1834
came to dinner. Today

is rainy, windy and stormy; so that
we do not venture out doors.

and Boston. Almost everybody you
meet takes pains to say that he is

phia

perverted action, the names of
Vallandigham
Birth: 1820-07-29 Death: 1871-06-17
and Fernando Wood
Birth: 1812-06-14 Death: 1881-02-14

being the great bugbears.

has a letter today from
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
. All are sorry here that
she did not come with us.
Affectionately yours
F.W.S.
