Every day since I recieved [sic] the heart-rending intelligence of Edgar's death I have been wishing to address you. Not knowing whether a letter directed to you at Fordham would reach you, I, this morning, commenced a letter to Mr. Griswold requesting him to assure you of my sympathy in your deep sorrow and of my unalterable affection for one whose memory is still most dear to me. I had not finished my long letter to him when I recieved [sic] your note.
Its contents greatly surprised me because I have written to no one since your son's death, nor have I forwarded or recieved [sic] any communication of the kind to which you allude. I cannot but think there has been some misapprehension in relation to this affair. If I am well enough to write you again while you remain at Lowell I will do so. If not my letter to Mr Griswold will inform you of much that I have been long wishing to communicate
