My Dear Willi
I have just seen the
circus pass- among others were six
little horses two of them were not
much larger than Carlo

- I thought
how nice it would be to have
one for you to ride - it would
not want a stable larger than
the north room closed- Mrs. Gorham

go to the circus
although he wanted to very much
when he saw those little ponys-
she said once in the course of his
life was enough and he went
once more than a year ago-

I think Carlo enjoyed seeing them
pass- he stood in a chair by the
front window and put his paws
on the window sill & looked
very attractively until they had
all disappeared -
What are you going to do the
fourth of July? The boys here
have already commenced firing
crackers- if nothing happens
I hope I shall be in Auburn
at that time- I met a naughty
boy in the street the other day
with a pretty young robin in
his hand - I asked him what
he was going to do with it &
he said sell it to a man to
put into a cage- I told him
Page 3

it was wicked to do so but he only
laughed and said he should
sell if for a shilling - I then told
him if he would open his hand
& let the bird go I would give
him a shilling but he would
not believe it for a long time
finally he let it fly and
when I gave him the money
he said he did not think he
would ever catch another bird
to confine in a cage-
I hope you will answer this letter
& and let me know how your rabbits
& chickens are and what you
feed them and where you keep -
them- Your affectionate
Aunty-

I want to see you and sister
