My dear Henry

Unknown
reached home
Tuesday evening and brought
me a very good account of
you and Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
- the same day
I had a letter from Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
saying
she was much better than she
had been. I have been quite
anxious about her since I came
home, fearing the sea air was
too bracing for her, but she says
her cough has left her & the
doctor thinks she is fast re-
covering. I hope she will
soon go to you at Washington

where she can have the advice of
Dr. Norris

, who I think understands
her constitution better than any
^other^ of the physicians there.
We are all as well as usual

, but I think the cool
weather will compel them to
return to the city. The papers
say you are well & doing a
vast amount of business in
the department. I know you
are working & I hope & pray
you may be well. I am glad
to hear that Frederick is so
far restored to health.
Very affectionately
Your sister.
