Editorial Note

Letter written by Olive Risley Seward for William H. Seward
Auburn May 26 1870
My dear Agustus
I learn from your
letter to Mrs Worden
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
that you
have proceeded to Charleston
which is henceforth to be your
post of duty. I could have
wished that it might be
otherwise especially during
the summer. We all are
well. The month of May has
been unusually pleasant.

Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
writes me daily
from Montrose. I am thinking
somewhat of going there to visit
him and from thence to
Orange Co. – but home is so
pleasant and rest so agreeable
after my long experiences abroad
that I shrink from travel
The California horses are here
and want you for a master.
We hear from Messina the
sad news that Dr. Hall
Birth: 1818-06-19 Death: 1870-04-28
died
early this month, his death
was the result of the disease
which drove him abroad, he

is deeply lamented here
and his loss be will be
both a misfortune and a shock
for Mrs. Worden whose trusted
physician he was.
Your aff. Father
