Editorial Note

Transcribed for WHS autobiography by AWS and edited by FWS in pencil. Original not in Seward Papers, UR.

The weather here has been yesterday and
today most delightful
. The Senate was in
Session today including time occupied by
the chaplain just forty five minutes.
No business as yet was matured and so
we adjoined literally for want of anything
to do. I am going to occupy so much time
as shall be spared to me in my own
private business and first of all I shall
fill this sheet so that it may be in the
mail at six o'clock.

The Water witch

is out. I shall buy it
and send it to you by the first opportunity.
I have not yet seen the face of a man
from Cayuga except our members.
Manchester
Birth: 1758-08-15 Death: 1846-03-14
is with me just about one third
of the time though he boards a mile off.
The other Cayuga members, Regency men
“whom we have put down you know” keep as
far from me as if I carried pestilence
in my march.
