Albany.
Thursday morning.
My dear Mother.
I find the
family
x Birth: 1841-12-14  Death: 1896-10-15  Birth: 1847  Death:   Birth: 1808-02-07  Death: 1868-09-09  Birth: 1812-10-29  Death: 1889-10-09 
in a great state
of confusion, living between
two houses. They began
to move yesterday.
Molly is staying from school
to take care of Nelly
Unknown
&
has her chained to the
leg of a table to prevent
her from slipping out the
front door.
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
is quite well
but much thinner then he
was last Autumn.

I had two splendid days
days for my journey.
Mrs Corning
Birth: 1794-07-31 Death: 1883-05-26
concluded to
remain several days in
New York so I telegraphed
to Fred to meet me on
Tuesday night – at the
Saint Nicholas. He could
not go as Mr. Dawson
Birth: 1813-03-14 Death: 1883-02-17
had
gone to Michigan and
left him alone in the office.
Mr Van Vorst
Birth: 1818 Death: 1889-10-26
came to see
me & went with me to the
cars. I came up alone.
Fred met me at Greenbush.
Everyone says I look so
well, much fuller faced
than usual.

My luggage went direct-
ly over to the other house.
We all expect to go there
tomorrow.
All send much love.
Affectionately your daughter
Anna
