My dear Uncle
I received you kind letter last week
and have had no good opportunity of answering
it until now. I had a letter from Aunty
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
a day or
two after. It has been very unpleasant for a few
days back, and is raining quite hard now.
Mr. Parmley
Birth: 1784-10-18 Death: 1862-05-24
delivers a Chemical Lecture this evening
Dr Bucklin
Birth: 1772-09-28 Death: 1843-12-10
went from here for Saratoga Springs,
and said he was going to stop in Albany and
Call at Uncle; Did uncle see him?.
Our school closes next Tuesday night, and if Uncle is
willing I should like to come home, (as they are going
to improve the building,) and if Uncle thinks it best
will he please send me some money to come
home with. We have an examination of two days.
Mr. Parmley says that I can get fitted for college in
three month in a year from this time.
Mr. Parmley's family

and they have not got quite well yet.
