Editorial Note

Written by Olive Risley Seward for William Henry Seward.
Copy
Paris, Sept. 1. 1871
My dear Frederick,
At last we have
made our definitive arrangement;
we leave Paris for Berlin on the 5th
of September, pass a few days at
London and sail for New York
in the Java on the 23d of Sept.
Hoping to meet you at the wharf
of the Cunard just about a month
from this day. If it be possible
for me to proceed directly by
steamboat or rail road to your
own house without resting in
the city of New York at all,
please so direct.
You will find me, I trust in
general health improved, since
I was last your visitor, but
you will find me less elastic,

and I shall hope that Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
will
have a lounge or a cot in your
pretty library which I can use
instead of climbing the rather
steep stair cases which lead to the
other wise preferable chamber
which you have dedicated to me
When I shall have had comforta-
ble rest with you, I shall desire
to proceed to Auburn and make
an early test of it as a winter
climate, for muscular powers
some what demoralized by time,
casualties and tropical travel.
I need not ask you to com-
municate this to William
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
.
Affectionately your father,
William H. Seward
