Mr. F. D. Huntington

Dear Frederic,

I have been invited to make you a call this afternoon, but as the girls are expecting to drink tea at Mr. Oliver Smith’s this afternoon [1], I must not think of it, for if it should be late before you father returns, our dear little Danny would be quite alone. I send you a handkerchief which you may return when it needs washing - and with you to send home your’s now to be washed - I shall get you a new one soon. Yesterday Sarah [2] and Marianne [3] with [?] [4] spent the afternoon with us, just after they came, Mrs. [?] and [wife] Walsh came also and drank tea with us. The [?] is fine. May our comforts which are so multiplied had up our health to Him whose favour alone can make us happy - Your’s as ever
