Editorial Note

This letter is attached to a letter from Lucy Standart (Watson) Bostwick to Augustus H. Seward, September 19, 1869
Auburn Sept 22d
My dear Gus
I will add a few words
to Lue's

letter – I have been to
see Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
this morning, found her
very well and feeling very happy
that she had been able to knit
a few stitches yesterday, she had
just received a letter from Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

written in San Francisco on their
return from Alaska I suppose you
have seen by the papers that they
are to start on the 30th for Mexico
Fred says the curiosities will soon
begin to arrive, among others an
Alaska Eagle and an Esquimaux
dog, won't they be nice? particularly
as the dog is said to have all the
vices of the fox, and none of the
virtues of the dog (as Fred writes) –
All the friends
Unknown
here are well,
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
is in New York, expects to be gone
until tomorrow or next day —

Catherine was very sick in the
Spring, but is better now –
Gus you will come immediately
home when you arrive, won't
you? We want to see you very
much. All the family send
love. Nelly and Willie send
kisses —
Very affectionately,
Janet Seward
