It is settled since last Wednesday that we leave here Thurs. 11.10 A.M. Shore line. Sarah & I & perhaps Edwd - I am altogether glad of this arrangement. We will spend the first night with you if you will & go pantographing the next day - unless you have too much to do. Yes - Sarah knows dearest that I shall be taken care of. Do they know at home that an equal tenderness shall greet their wanderer? O may I not grow selfish & consent to be wrapped away in such affection forgetful that I owe immeasurably to others out of such noble income!-

Yr. bust will be pecked on Monday & sent immediately. It might be a smoother copy than it is. I found it - this A.M., dried as hard as a chip & so not capable of much working up - if any -

the surface is in some places quite rough.

Business accumulates as the time grows brief. The snow-storm wh. has xpedited the sewing has put off much visiting - I wonder if you do not want some bottles of tooth powder - I shall get some for you if I have a chance to procure it for myself.

Do you know that you left a green dress here? Also yr. autumn picture?

Yr last 2d letter (letters) came duly - & were joyfully recd -

Let's see - Tuesday - day after tomorrow - then day after tomorrow & will our hearts not quake a little as we put the liquid barrier between us & old habitats & -tudes & sail into the new epoch?

The Shannons will not go until Friday

Till we meet -

Sat night -

Letter from Anne Whitney, to Adeline Manning, 1867 February 24
