Wed Thursday 17t July
My dear Henry
I have been anxious
about you ever since
you left home so much
indisposed — hope to-
day to hear from you
either by a letter or
through the journals —
I read your remarks
on Mr Douglas
Birth: 1813-04-23 Death: 1861-06-03
kansas
bill yesterday which
are so good that I
wish some copies for

circulation — Will it
not be printed in a
pamphlet — I have
not yet any of those
on it Mr Crittendens
Birth: 1787-09-10 Death: 1863-07-26

Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
go back

and
others advised that she

be kept without hay —
it is now three months —
her cough seems to have
left her — oats are too
stimulating for constant
food exclusive of others —
though she may be more
spirited now she will
suffer by & by — it is
necessary that you express
a decided opinion on
this subject, which with
many others was neglected
when you were here owing
to your illness & my
own — Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
has recovered from
the effect of her pic nic — y-
