I am so glad the Bishop took no further notice of [Maury Mein?] to accept his resignation, I hear Maury has published a pamphlet which puts him among the Quakers, I am so convinced of his insanity that I don’t think it matters what he says.

Mr. Johns just came in and I said, “Ma has written a whole letter without saying when she is coming.” and he said well you needn’t send my love to her she won’t even come to see her posterity—we have had three baskets of delicious grapes from the garden. I think it is the Concord—so very sweet—there are more coming out. Mr. Johns brought his gun and gentleman dog so we shall have some birds. I gave yr. message to Liz and she most cried at the idea you suggest and says she will write [[end page]] [[start page]] tomorrow.

I wonder if Mr. Van Wyck loses anything by the Cal. bank failure. I feel quite anxious about it. I got the first jasmine bloom this morning. I wish you could see the tuberoses I never saw such beauties. And oh! the morning glories! They merit a more honored location.

John Mason got a telegram from Pink in Balt. not on her way home either—you never mention her!—is her mother coming home with her I hope? I hope that Mr. [Grammar?] will decline and Mr. Hubbard will accept. Love to Puss and the children Your friend
