Editorial Note

Originally included in March 1, 1871 letter written by Olive Risley Seward for William Henry Seward and sent to William Seward Jr.
Auburn April 21st
Dear Augustus
I send a copy of Father's
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

last letter. I hope he is out of India before
this time as the weather is frightfully hot
at this season – Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
– thinks he will not
return home this year – & the Randalls
x Birth: 1845-10-02  Death: 1918-10-06  Birth: 1819-10-31  Death: 1872-07-26 
said
when they left him, in China, he had made
up his mind to spend the winter in Rome.
There is a report in Washington that Hattie
Birth: 1850-03-05 Death: 1925-07-27
has
found an admirer in her travels – perhaps
she will be married before they return – I think the
news came through Sally Upton
Unknown
– Olives friend –
We are all well here and enjoying the fine
weather though not green peas and straw-
berries as you are in Charleston — We had a
telegram from Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
last night saying they
were all going to San Diego & Los Angeles
this week – to be back to California the 20th
Nothing new here excepting Mary Carpenters
Birth: 1850 Death: 1911-05-12

wedding which takes
place on Wednesday
of next week – I see Mrs Watson
Birth: 1812-03-30 Death: 1893-11-13
and her
daughters

often – they always inquire about you
Frances
