Sunday Aug. 14 th
My dear Sister,
I was very glad to get your long
letter last night – it came home about ten oclock.
I received a letter from Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
yesterday – he seems
much disappointed that we did not come with
Sam
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07
– I did not think of such a thing indeed
he almost satisfied me that was unnecessary
for me to go for a long time to come – Henry
writes despondingly – The book occasions much
vexation – Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
is to come home to day for
a vacation – I was not aware that his vacation commen
ced so early – I ought to be there to attend to his
clothes and have concluded that upon the whole
it is best for me to go down next week – I have
written to Henry this morning that I would go any
day next week that he can meet me at Utica
Freddy
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
had better come home Friday or Saturday
so we may go on Monday –

I think Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
will go but do not consider it quite
certain – She thinks it almost impossible to leave
the house with Ann
Unknown
and Maria – they are bad
enough but I tell her the house would have been
left with them had she commenced housekeeping –
Clara has gone this morning to the 2d Church to hear
the Nestorian Bishop
Unknown
make a speech – It is the season
of Commencement in the Seminary – I hope you will
tell Fred that you know of the Nestorians I am
sorry to acknowledge myself unpleasantly ignorant –
Madame D Arblay's
Birth: 1752-06-13 Death: 1840-01-06
memoirs are hardly worth
reading we have but one of the 3 numbers in
which it is published — The 2d – neither beginning
nor end – this was sent me by Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22
I believe
who thinks it entertaining – it is chiefly gossip
relating to herself and acquaintances, very inferior
to Hannah More's
Birth: 1745-02-02 Death: 1833-09-07

– I proposed taking
it back but if you wish will leave it here to be
sent to you the first opportunity – I am glad
my boy is enjoying his visit – I shall be very glad
to see him – Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
wrote last week & was well

Willie's
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
eyes are not much better – I have discontinued
the homeopathy medicine – and to day commence giving
him rhubarb – Blatchford has represented his eyes
to Henry as being very bad – Tell Fred that Tom
has not been seen since Monday morning – Little
kitty
Unknown
is very amusing – She and Willie perform
various feats – Clara has come home muchmuch
edificed with the sight of the Bishop and the
'talk' of the Missionary – The “seminaries" are
to hold forth this afternoon – Pa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
has just
gone to Syracuse to the Episcopal convention –
Bishop delivers his first charge – Tell Freddy
he must be sure and not jump out of the cars or any
thing of that kind as I cannot spare him –
Your own Sister –
