My dear Son,
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
has had two
tempting offers of com-
-pany to Washington
but thinks it better
not to go – Harriet
Weed
Birth: 1819-02-06 Death: 1893-11-01
goes tomorrow –
Mrs Martins

some
time this week –
It seemed a long
time to wait for
intelligence from
Saturday until
Page 2

Monday - then we
had the news of
Gen McClellands
Birth: 1826-12-03 Death: 1885-10-29

success –
Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
and her family
x Birth: 1822-02-03  Death: 1888-11-24  Birth: 1854-02-13  Death: 1931-05-23 

came yesterday – I
took tea with them
at Pisgah in the
evening – Frances
is quite well–
We are all talking
of a drive to Gov
Throop
Birth: 1784-08-21 Death: 1874-11-01
this evening
if the rain does
not prevent – I
am glad of every cool
day here hoping

the heat at the
South may be less –
I do not write
Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
any more
as I suppose he is
on his way to Wash-
ington.
Mr McKay’s
 Death: 1877

fictitous speculations
may amuse you
so I continue to send
them – besides there is
occasionally a gleam
of truth –
God bless you all
Mother.
