Frances Marvin Smith Webster1847-01-27Lucien BonaparteFort McHenry, MD39.2641151-76.5798874I wrote you a few days since, dearest husband, from this place, where I have almost concluded to remain all winter. Aunt Harriet expects to be alone and wishes me to stay with her and share the expenses of housekeeping, etc. I am inclined to believe this will be the most economical arrangement for the winter. I shall at all events try it for one month and then I can judge better than now. . . .-- NA --I have no letters from you later than August 28th and hope that I shall receive some in a few days. Please show Captain Donaldson the paragraph in the Sun which refers to him and his gallant deeds. What do you think of it? Why can't Vermont puff her sons? Remember me kindly to Donaldson and Bowen and all other friends. Take care of yourself, beloved one, and may God shield you from all danger.
