Author: Rogers, Hortensia Monroe
Abstract: Hope grandfather continues to gain strength. He is head of our family, the cornerstone of our building. Educated her. Upset that James Monroe (probably nephew) is coolly calculating on his death. Has gotten Life of Byron. Hear Byron is very indlicate. Not fit for ladies to hear. You parted from me in anger. I hardly know why. Couldn't carry a child into disease. Did you not carry me to my poor grandmother's to avoid the measles.
