Monday June 29th
My dear Augustus
I was very glad to
hear of your safe arrival in Boston –
We all felt particularly aggrieved
When a telegram arrived an hour
or two after you left saying you might
remain another day – Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
did not
go until Friday – Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
and
the children
x Birth: 1864-11-10  Death:   Birth: 1862-09-11  Death: 1921-10-05 
left on Saturday
morning – There was a party at Mrs.
Pomeroy’s
Birth: 1834-03-20 Death: 1892-02-25
after you left and all
excepting Will and I spent a hot
day at Mrs. Martin’s
Birth: 1818-12-25 Death: 1899-07-09
Molly
Birth: 1847

two days there –The Perry boys
x Birth: 1852-04-16  Death: 1927-04-28  Birth: 1849-03-26  Death: 1929-05-12 
launched
their boat on Thursday and in
the evening they and Henry Titus
Birth: 1849-06 Death: 1933-07-12

dined with Father – in the later
part of the evening there was quite
Page 2

a party of young and old people – among
others Gen. Segoine
Birth: 1804-01-06 Death: 1895-08-13
– of course – The day
Father left he & I spent alone – the
only time I had with him without – in-
terruption While he was here – They left
at 2 o clock in the afternoon – Col –
Carpenter
Birth: 1821 Death: 1885-10-25
& Mary
Birth: 1796-08-01 Death: 1883
and Christopher
Morgan
Birth: 1808-06-04 Death: 1877-04-03
going with them as far as
Cayuga Bridge – I had a letter from
Anna
Birth: 1834-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
after they all got home. Sun-
day morning – She and Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
had a gay
time in N. York – they were at Mr. Weed’s
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22

& he went with them to various places
among other places they – Fred & Anna
went to Sing Sing on Thursday and
spent the next day driving through
the country – On Saturday they visited
“the Islands by invitation and visited
all the Institutions there – On Monday
they attended the races at Jerome
Park-

The most interesting thing is they bought a
place on the Hudson river 40 miles from
N. York – There are thirty acres of land
and a quarter of a mile river front –
a very plain brick house – the grounds
are naturally very beautiful though
not at all improved – At first they
thought of only renting it – but on seeing
it a second time decided to buy it –
Fred – wants Mr. Wharton
Birth: 1808-02-07 Death: 1868-09-09
to go there and
stay until they can go themselves –
The rail road Station is Montrose , four
miles south of Peekskill and directly op-
posite to Stoney Point – The steam boat
landing is Verplancks – Which is also the
Post office – disant one mile & a half –
They can leave Washington at night
and breakfast there – at their own place –
next morning –
Page 4

They will have their furniture moved
there immediately & put some one in
the house –
It is very warm here & has
been ever since you left – I think I never
felt the heat more than I did the day
Father started – Anna says the heat
in Washington has been very intense
I am now going out in search of Bruno
Who left this morning and has not
returned –
Affectionately
Your Aunty –
