Auburn Friday Morning
My dearest Father,
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is writing
you today and says I may
send a little note in her letter.
I thought of you very early
this morning rising to look
out on the must beautiful
part of the Penn. railroad.
I hope the journey is helping
to complete your cure, and
that you may reach home
tonight feeling your usual
q strength.
I begun to feel better
yesterday evening – passed a

good night and am decidedly
better today – feeling cool and
tranquil.
Ellen
Birth: 1845 Death: 1920-06
spent the night with
me, & is coming to sit with
me this afternoon. Tonight
Mrs. Perry
Birth: 1819-10-04 Death: 1898-02-12
is kindly seeing
to me.
I am sitting up, & have
been for more than an
hour. There was a
storm in the night, which
cooled the atmosphere
very much. I am
opposite the open door
looking into a dense

mass of foliage all filled
with sunshine.
Today we hear that dear
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
has driven out. I
am so very glad! What
a relief to him after the
confinement which he has
borne with such beautiful
patience.
I hope Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
is quite
well again. Please
give very much love
to all for me.
I wait anxiously to know
how you are.
Your loving daughter
Fanny
