that my place now, is near my Nellie. If that dreadful panic had not come last year, I would have made a fine sale of my dear beautiful book, and if I had, I was going to empty the whole of it (one hundred thousand dollars) into your lap, in exchange for your charming sunny house in Washington, and how I would have enjoyed having all my young people with me, but it was willed otherwise and now, I go to the children in place of their coming to me. I go to the Col's for a while and then to Nellie's for a longer visit. Ulysses with his family are still at San Diego, as is my Jesse with his family who are so happy just now in occupying their pretty little house I have given them. Their letters are so full of love and gratitude that I feel more than happy that I

I hope you are quite well my dear Mrs Stanford, we have all talked of you and I have often thought of you and hoped you have passed the summer comfortably.

I have had a very happy summer here with first Col Fred and family and then my Nellie (my white dove)

and her son and daughter. They too are sweet and gentle as are Freds children.

Nellie is now in Washington, where she writes since she has secured a pretty little house with a nice sunny room for (dear mama) me, with her own room next it where we can enjoy an early cup of tea. This is a pleasant antiscipation [sic] is it not? and dear Mrs Stanford I am sure you will think with me

wonderful works of our Creator.

I am here alone at Narragansett with Mary. I expect Col Fred and family for a few weeks, then Nellie and her young party. I have invited several old friends from Washington but they had all gone to their places for the summer and are too feeble to make another move

I want you to know that my thoughts are with you to day will you think of me July the twenty third?

I am always with love sincerely your friend

God bless and keep you my dear Mrs Stanford

My dear Mrs Stanford

I have changed all my plans for the summer, and in place of going up the Hudon have taken a tiny wee cottage (one of Sherry's) at Narragansett Pier where I can be quiet and have all the comforts of a home

without the cares of house keeping & will have enough room for either the Col's or Nellie's families who have promised me a week or two of their time. If you should come east this summer do come and rest with me, won't you? Whilst shopping the other day I found a facsimile of this nice

conversation, and have you read to me those delightful passages. (I never fail to read each day a portion of the dear little book you gave me).

I am afraid I neglected to inform my son Fred and Ida, of your presence in New York. You may forgive me but I am afraid they will not. I really thought I had written, but Nell tells me they did not know you were there.

I will be entirely settled when you return here and am hoping to see much of you my dear Mrs Stanford

God bless and keep you is my sincere prayer
