ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE,Saturday afternoon,
April 28, 1866
I got both your letters—the last one has just come—It is too bad to be so troubled about a house—but then, Mother, there might be troubles a great deal worse than that—Mother, when you get there, & feel able, you must write me a few lines, & give me the No. of the house, & the right address, &c.
Well, mother, you must all try to get along the best you can. Try to take it easy as possible.
