I leave to-day for
Phila —unhappy—very
—for I feel that I
am still an invalid
constrained to keep within
“limitations” which exclude
the performance of my
duties. The day of re-
covery is constantly re-
treating & eluding my
grasp. I felt it yester-
day painfully. When
will it end?
Ever yours,
Charles Sumner
Give my love to Mrs Seward
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21

& remember me cordially to
my excellent old friend
Dr Henry.
