[handwritten in pencil: [1884]] Shelburne N.H. Aug. 7 Dear Edward I see by the papers that the police are inclined to attribute the Vaughan's committee of late to the fact that people go out of town without + leave their houses empty without giving them warning. I doubt if it would make much difce whether they knew or not, but since they seek to throw the

responsibly in this way upon the house-holders, it will be well to fall in with their advice + give notice. I do not know the name of the Chief of Police or I should write directly to him. If you will kindly let him know that 92 is empty xcept during the night hours I shall be indebted to you.

A letter from Sarah yesterday reports favorably of the then state of affairs at your house - I hope Mother's arm is now on the way to a cure. The weather here is glorious - with frequent rains that keep everything as fresh as the beginning - We had one cold night - that is all.

The mail bay waits -

Your's ever

Anne -

Letter from Anne Whitney, Shelburne, New Hampshire, to Edward Whitney, Boston, Massachusetts, 1884 August 7
