Macau, Oct.14, 1865.
My dear Uncle –
I have heard with deep
sorrow of the death of Aunt Frances
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21

Although I have scarcly known her
I have long admired her excellent
qualities of head and heart as
they have been told to me by other
members of the family who were
more fortunate. Against this heavy
sorrow I hope that you may be
able to bear up with the fortitude
which you have lately evinceed under
other trials.
That your own health and
that of Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
is so much better than
might be expected, is very satisfac-
tory. That each may completely
recover is the earnest hope of
Your nephew,
Geo. F. Seward.
Hon. W.H. Seward.
