Editorial Note

This letter appears to continue a conversation about bills for building LMW’s house from correspondence of December 4 and 12, 1856. It is on the same paper as the other two letters, and there is no further correspondence from her to WHS for 1857. So, despite the fact that WHS’s secretary dates the letter as 1857, we believe he mistook the year.

My dear Brother
