March 1865,
I write this for you my daughter
It in the event of my not being able to
talk with you on this subject. After
mature consideration of the matter & supposing
all parties to consent I advise that your
father

instead of building an addition to this
house should unite with Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and build
somewhere on the Hudson or any other place
they should prefer a house which will
be a home for you all like that in
Washington where you all seem happy.
I would remain in this ^house^ so much as
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
& I need to be comfortable letting
Wm.
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
take the remainder when that could
be done with Aunty's consent. I think
Wm. intends making his home in Auburn.
I doubt whether my other children would
find it so agreeable here as we who have
never lived elsewhere. Of course if Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

or Frederick prefer this place they are
entitled to it before Wm. but I do not
think they would. Should I see you all
again as I hope, we will talk it over together.
