and I start for New
York
in our carriage, expecting
to reach there the 10th of June,
can't you meet us there? say spend
the next Sunday with us, we would
be so glad to see you, we cer-
tainly expect a visit here from
you this Summer. It seems
to be decided that your Father

stays in Washington. I hope
you will find Boston pleasant
this Summer, I don't imagine
it will be very hot. Auburn
is a pleasant as usual, the

birds are more numerous, if that
is possible. Today the returned
soldiers, decorated their com-
rads graves. Nelly and Willie
went with my mother

up to Mrs
Pomeroys
Birth: 1835-09-04 Death: 1892-02-25
to see the procession.
Nelly says it was beautiful,
and all Willie would tell about
it was, "they had big things to
blow on" meaning the band of
music. Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
has not been
very well, but is better now, was
down here to tea last night –
she and Mrs Pomeroy are going
to ride aways with us tomorrow
and see us safely started on
our journey, we wish they were
going all the way. Our family
are all well. I shall let you
know how long we shall stay

sends her love to you.
Your sister
