I have sold my interest in our 12th st home and only keep my country home Millbrook. opposite the beautiful, Halcyon, where I met Mrs Boggs.

I came to Vineyard Haven to be with my daughter Mrs Davison - (Birdie) and her baby boy John Alden. two months old - I return to Millbrook this coming week for the autumn & New York for the winter. I wish you were living nearer that sometimes we could talk over other days & of dear ones. My life is now in the past. but I do not give up my mission work. visiting must come to me. I am more glad to see my friends and most fully appreciate their kindness in coming - I take small journeys & enjoy them - before the winter I mean to go to the cemetery Albany - shall go to "Dot's," think of the time: - I think it was, 1838, or 39 we first knew Mrs Covert. I was a school girl. living in Green st, before she learned her trade, about 58 years ago - or rather 60. years ago.

I know mere words avail nothing, but my memory reverts so often to our former days of warm friendship that I ventured to speak at this time remembering too our correspondence of later yrs. - While our lives & circumstances have greatly varied during the past, still my feeling of old friendship remains as ever.

My dear I can only com-mend you to His care who "doeth all things well" 'tho to us many times it seems very dark--You are greatly blessed with an abundance of this worlds goods, in contrast to many who are left to struggle alone for a mere pittance.

I have a living sorrow which is often said to be heavier to bear than one by death. My dear Connie is still an inmate of an "Insane-Inst” — I attend to her wants & visit her once a month. Oh how
