Feb. 27th 1870
My dear Gus,
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
came home
this morning leaving your father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

and Fred
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
in New York at the
Astor House. Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
went to
Montrose yesterday and took the
Mexican young lady
Unknown
with her.
Father is to have a public re-
ception. Will did not hear on
what day as it was not decided
until noon yesterday; on Thursday
he has accepted an invitation to
dine with Mr Berrada
Birth: 1827 Death: 1883
so he
will not come home until after
that, he is very anxious to get
home, but it is so cold here
Will and all his friends tried to
persuade him not to come at
present, but we shall not be

surprised to see him any day –
We have had very cold weather and
about two feet of snow – I will
telegraph to you as soon as we
here when father is coming –
Will went on to Baltimore to meet
him, Nelly
Birth: 1862-09-11 Death: 1921-10-05
and I were all ready
to go but Willie
Birth: 1864-11-10
was not very
well and I did not like to
leave him – We are all well
now. Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is very much better
than when you were here. I hope
you will be able to come home
as soon as father does –
Lucy
Birth: 1832-04-27 Death: 1903-12-20
sends her love to you
she is with me now, but is soon going to Mothers
Birth: 1812-03-30 Death: 1893-11-13
.
With much love,
Jenny
