thought quite seriously of doing so,
as the delightful week I passed with
you is and ever will be first in my memory
but our friends here would not hear
of our leaving, declaring that if it was
not cool on Lake Erie, it could not
be any where, so not having written
Mrs. Seward at all, I relinquished the
idea of the visit for the time being at least.

Mr. Seward
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
has invited me to join
the Chinese Embassy, when they visit
you, and it is barely possible that
my father
Birth: 1814 Death: 1893
will come out with him
at that time, and if Mrs. Seward is
not overwhelmed with company and
care that Hattie and I will join them
and return to Washington at that
but you will hear about it when
its time comes –
Give my love, if you please
to Mrs. Seward and the children
