her a good deal - I told her if she felt able to write to aunt Eliza that I would try to write to you. She commenced a letter last night - and I hope will get it finished - she doesn't like writing as she once did & it tires her. This morning was so fine, that she thought a little out of door exercise would do her good - so she walked over to Capt. McNeel's - I was afraid the walk would be too much for her, but she thought not - she hasn't gotten back yet and I can't help feeling a little uneasy about her, when she goes out alone. What a great blessing for aunt Eliza that you are free to give all your attention to her - Mother spends so many wakeful lonely hours at night
