Albany Sept 20th
My dear Fanny,
I have been intending to
write to you for some time but have not found
time untill now to do so.
Last Wednesday I went up to the Fair
(which is held here every year) with Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

& Anna
Birth: 1834-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
; we saw a number of pretty
things and among others a very pretty
little Goat which I should have liked
to have had you seen; he was just large
enough to hitch up with Nep
Birth: 1856 Death: 1859
and drive;
there were also some beautiful flowers and
many other nice things.
I have been up this evening to call
on Fred & Anna they are all quite
well; Mrs Wharton
Birth: 1812-10-29 Death: 1889-10-09
& the children
x Birth: 1841-12-14  Death: 1896-10-15  Birth: 1850-06-06  Death: 1859-03-13  Birth: 1847  Death:

came home last Wednesday they
all send much love.
Last night I moved from my old
boarding place where I have been for
the past three months; I have now
a very nice place my room looks
out on to the river and the Highlands
on the other side. William Henry
Birth: 1835-01-09 Death: 1926
has
the same room with me.
Tell mother
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
that I received her letter
this evening and am much obliged.
Mother writes me that Clara Miller
Birth: 1827-12-03 Death: 1911-07-07

is to be married soon; I suppose that
you will not go to the Wedding as
it is to be in Rotchester.
Will you ask Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
if she will
send me a copy of the Rail Road
Survey

if you have any to spare; I
want it for a friend
Unknown
of mine
Love to all
Your affectionate Brother
Will
