Department of State
Sept. 23. 1868
To Mr. F W. Seward.
Montrose. N.Y.
I have your letter
of Sunday and I felicitate you
upon the progress you have
made in your removal and
repairs. Mr. Hunter
Birth: 1805 Death: 1886Certainty: Probable
and
Mr. Smith
Unknown
are both here.
We are very busy but cheerful.
I have a letter from home.
All are well at Auburn. Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

writes me that somebody has
been killing his chickens.

I think I gave you Mr. Bigelow's
Birth: 1786-02-27 Death: 1879-01-10

advices about Mr. Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22
which
were quite discouraging.
I have a later letter from Mr.
Bigelow today, who states
that Mr. Reid has returned to
Paris and that he was better
at the time the letter was
written than he had been at
any time, and the writer thinks
he is advancing to convalescence.
I wish I could believe it.
Mr. Evarts
Birth: 1818-02-06 Death: 1901-02-28
, the Attorney General,

has gone to New York.
I have charged him
with some matters of consul-
tation there concerning
Mr. Weed and especially concerning ^concerning^
sending his physician to him.
If it should happen that
you have occasion to be
in New York it would be very
useful if you could come
into conference with Mr. Evarts and
Mr. Blatchford
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07
, but do not go for
that purpose merely.
