Auburn Jan. 17th
My dear Henry,
I received your letter of the 15th
this morning I enclose the address.
I have only time to write a few lines &
my head aches violently. I think if you
still consider it advisable for me to come
to Albany that I shall be able to go as
soon as the 1st of Feb, about a fortnight
hence. I do not know how many maid
servants you have. Will it be necessary
for me to bring Maria
Unknown
along to wait upon
me. Tell Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
that Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
has been looking
anxiously for a letter some days past.
I did not obtain my information respecting
your disorderly visitors from Augustus
letter. I have a letter from Jennings
Birth: 1793-08-23 Death: 1841-02-24

written about ten days ago he says he
is going to Albany soon. Of course he had
heard nothing of the death of our
dear Sister
Birth: 1805-10-29 Death: 1839-01-04
. In haste your own Frances.
