My Dear Frederick,
Your broker
Unknown
sends you
a Stock circular.
General Mott
Birth: 1831 Death: 1894
passed
through Malta on the 20th
of August, the most oppress-
ive day experienced in that
African climate, and left on
the Steamer which brought
him there, for Constantinople.

He put into the care of
the Consul, Mr. Winthrop

,
a small box which con-
tains a very pretty Maltese
silver cross, which the
Consul has sent to Mrs.
Anna Seward
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
with the
General's compliments and
the Consul's anxious wishes
for its safe arrival.
I will send the letter
to you when I have ac-
knowledged it to the

Consul. The cross I will
retain here till Anna's
return.
Mrs. Charlotte Cushman
Birth: 1816-07-23 Death: 1876-02-18

writes me a very manly
letter, in which, like her-
self, she expresses a very
proper, though feminine,
appreciation of Anna, and
desires to be affectionately
remembered to Anna and
to yourself. I will send
that letter also as soon
as I shall have acknowl-

edged it. It would seem
that Miss Cushman
cannot come to Washing-
ton before the middle
of October.
Governor Morgan
Birth: 1811-02-08 Death: 1883-02-14
arrived
here night before last
and told me that he
was opposed to calling
an extra session of Con-
gress even upon the Bank's
plan. General Schenck
Birth: 1809-10-04 Death: 1890-03-23

arrived here yesterday
morning and informed

the Postmaster General
Birth: 1819-10-31 Death: 1872-07-26

that he also was opposed
to an extra session even
upon the Bank's plan.
Last night they convened
and issued a Summons
for Congress to assemble
with a suggestion that
they proceed upon the
Bank's plan! It thus
seems that I but too
well understood both.

All seems quiet along
the lines.

case
is again a subject
of anxiety. She has
yet to pass the crisis
of a typhoid fever.
Affectionately yours
William H Seward
