Sackets Harbor N. Y.
June 22d 1851
Here it is the 22d of June and yet I have not heard a word from you. I am really geting quite uneasy lest something is the matter. I have written you some six weeks since I have heard a word and in one of the letters inclosed you a check. I do not hear if you got it, if you are at home or anything from you. Dearest why dont you write ? You know how you scold when I neglect writing more than a week. I am begining to be like you was when you said you did not care a cent for any of them at home for you had no friends. Your not writing keeps me in constant suspense lest poor little Freddy may be sick again. Write to me as soon as you get this and dont neglect in future to write at least once evry week. I have not gone an entire week without writing to you but once since you left me.
All our things arrived from Detroit, and I moved into Garrison, yesterday. The Col. has not arrived yet but we look for him this week.
I have selected for my quarters the rooms Col. Smith formerly occupied, on the opposite side of the sally port from where we lived before. Evrything looks much better about the Barracks than they did when we were here before. The fences have been put up and the place repaired.
Since I have been here I have visited Watertown and Brownville each twice and taken an occational ride into the country. Things look just as they did evry where except in Watertown.
