Florida September 18 17th.
My dear George,
My mother
Birth: 1769-11-27 Death: 1844-12-11
concludes to go to Albany with us
and we have taken up another passage. The roads are so bad that with
so large a force we think it is inexpedient to go through Goshen–
We leave a wagon at your house which please accept as a present
from our little blind Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
to his cousin George
Birth: 1841 Death: 1915
– I have a bill at
Hathaways for Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
& Harriets
Birth: 1807 Death: 1888-08-20
lodging – which please pay— You
have advanced some money for me. Put the whole into a draft at
night on me at Albany– Bid my dear cousins an affectionate
adieu for us with many thanks for all their kindness. Nicholas
and Harriet left a workbag
a indispensable at Hathaways con-
taining a pocketbook with a note
of some little value– Will you get it & send it to us
and believe me most affectionately
Your cousin
Henry.
George M Grier Esq.
