Charleston SC
March 10t 1871
Dear Father
I have just received
a copy of your letter from
Hong Kong stating that you
were about to leave there
for Madras thence by
Suez to Cairo & Constantinople
Our Spring is just
commencing here the fruit trees
being in blossom and the earlier
trees foliage partially out: but I
suppose you have still warmer
weather where you are at this
date.
William
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
and Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09

were about leaving on a
trip to San Francisco Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

wrote me in her last, also that
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
& Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
had been to

make a visit to Mrs Randall
Birth: 1845-10-02 Death: 1918-10-06

who informed them many interesting
matters concerning their voyage
to China and return.
Mr Randall
Birth: 1819-10-31 Death: 1872-07-26
was not at home
he is in Washington during the
session of Congress I think.
My duties keep me in
Charleston most of the time
though I make occasional
trips to the interior of this and the
adjacent States.
Political affairs are not
entirely settled here and the
troops are kept moving from
one place to another as occasion
requires.
This State as a general thing
has been quiet but now there
are more disturbances in it
than any of the others.
All were well at Auburn

when I last heard.
Hoping that this may
find you continuing to improve
I remain your affectionate son
Augustus
