As I have been rather unwell lately from the fatigue of my journey I have neglected my journal so much I scarcely know how to continue it however as my journey is nearly at an end I must at least give some account of the latter part of it though as usual my beloved father I am fearful you will find it exceedingly tedious— I believe my last letter was dated at Breslau though my journal had only...
Death in the Dance. A reminiscence The new year had opened without a cloud to obscure the azure of heaven and all hailed the prospect of a fair day.—The Sun shone with radiant splendor; every eye was brilliant with glee, and the cheeks of youth and beauty glowed with the rich carmine of health.

I recieved your very kind letter late last night and hasten to answer it although I have already written by this post. You need be under no apprehension about your dear Boy as it is impossible for a child to be in better health and the terrible eruption proved to be nothing more than bug bites he has taken his weaning like a little hero and continues to grow very stout and hearty I talk to him...

I must draw upon you for the sum of twenty dollars as I have been obliged to purchace mourning on account of the death of Mrs. Hellen the Mother of Nancy’s husband the family all very anxious to see you papas not at all well. Adieu believe me /...
Richard has just brought me your note and I am very happy to hear you are all well. Betsys Mother must be mistaken as to her having had the Measles as she is now confined to her room which we hope she will leave tomorrow she has had them very favorably and at her age I think it a happy thing to have got through the disorder George we expect will have them next Sunday it is unfortunate as he...
