with my Son William and send one to you. Alas! For my sad neglect, how I regret it. He was at my table when the sad intelligence came of the death of his Father. There is much more I want to write you of his life while with us and of his fond attachment to our son William. I was always proud of them when they started away to school together with books under their arms. Dr Riley and William joins me in extending our deepest sympathy to you and your Daughters. Very sincerely Henrietta M. Riley (Mrs W.H.)


Kindly write me again and I surely will be more prompt in answering
