Auburn Feb. 26-/71
My dear Gus,
This morning I received
a letter from Olive Risley
Birth: 1844-07-15 Death: 1908-11-27
, dated
"Jan. 2d Hong Kong." She says
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
is improving, and is
enjoying himself very much.
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
were here and
spent last Sunday with us.
They went from here to Elmira
to see Mrs Randall
Birth: 1813-05-23 Death: 1903-08-02
, - Tomorrow
Frances Chesebro
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
is coming to make
a short visit. Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
and I are
expecting to start for California
on the 20th of March, it is really
necessary for Will to go away
from his business for a while.
It's very hard for me to leave
the children but it is equally hard
to have Will go away, and as
Page 2

he is not well and the children
are, and I can leave them in
such excellent care (Cora Richardson
Birth: 1845-01-15 Death: 1890-12-10
)
I have decided to go, we should
love to see you before we go, but I
don't suppose that is possible –
I suppose Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
wrote you that
Will had a telegram from Father
from Madras, telling of money
drawn, and "well"
I don't know but this may find
you in Louisville, I hope you will
go there as I know you want to.
My brother
Birth: 1842-08-29 Death: 1896-10-29
and sisters
x Birth: 1835-09-04  Death: 1892-02-25  Birth: 1832-04-27  Death: 1903-12-20 
always send
love to you. All are well–
With much love
Yours affectionately
Janet
