Auburn Nov. 17th
My dear Gus,
I have just received
the enclosed telegram from
father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
, how delighted I was, and
am. I am here all alone, Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

is in New York, or rather is on
his way home tonight, has been
gone since Monday morning,
and it being 8 P.M. the children
are in bed, I went up to Nelly
Birth: 1862-09-11 Death: 1921-10-05

and found her awake, upon
telling her I was going to write
to you she said "give my love
to Uncle Gus, and tell him to
be sure and come home on
Page 2

Christmas" – and I say too, I hope
you will be able to spend Christ-
mas with us – Will and I were
gone just two weeks, on our western
trip, we had a very pleasant
time although it was very cold.
I was very much pleased with
the prairies, and now want to
see them when the grass is green.
I suppose Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
writes you all the
Auburn news. Mary Carpenters
Birth: 1850 Death: 1911-05-12
engage-
ment to Warren Worden
Birth: 1847 Death: 1926-09-14
is the
last piece. My family are all well
as usual and all would send
love to you if they were here –
Miss Parkman
Birth: 1843-04-02 Death: 1916-10-23
has at last gone
to Washington , and I hope will find
it pleasant enough to make a
long visit. The weather here is
quite cold, roads very muddy;
we had quite a snow storm on
Page 3

Monday and some of it still
remains in our garden; how
pleasant it is to think of the
South at this time of the year!
I hope you will be permitted
to stay where it is warm and
pleasant –
With much love,
Sister Jenny –
