Auburn Jan 5th/67
My dear Gus,
I beg pardon
for being so negligent in
answering your, letter, the
gifts were recived with much
pleasure — We see by the
papers that Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

had a serious time at the
commencement of their journey,
I hope the continuation
will be more successfull —
We are all well as usual.
We were rather expecting to
see Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
here last week
but the papers were mistaken,
we shall be glad to see him
and you with him, at any time

I hope you will be able to read
Nellys
Birth: 1862-09-11 Death: 1921-10-05
letter, it is all her own,
Mama simple guiding the pen,
Aunty Worden
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is as well as usual.
I shall be happy to hear from
you —
Your affectionate sister,
Jenny —
My sister Mrs Pomeroy
Birth: 1835-09-04 Death: 1892-02-25
goes to
Washington next week with her
husband
Birth: 1824-12-31 Death: 1905-03-23
. They will be at Willards
she will be delighted to see you
