Awbury 7 mo. 31. 1887My Dear WifeI did unintentional injustice to July yesterday in dispatching him a day too soon. I suppose I thought he had lived long enough-- but while theres life theres hope & of him may be said what has been said of many an old sinner before that in the end of his days he is showing a softening of disposition that one would hardly have looked for in one who had been so troublesome before. He keeps up his heat pretty well, but he is fanning us with a fine breeze that makes it quite pleasant to sit on the piazza (now at 1 o’clock)-- where Henry is sitting discussing with Tom & Hazen some things he learned on his trip next.Harry, George Emlen, Madge, Mary Emlen & Frank Haines all got home yesterday & with Alf & Margaret give Awbury something of its proper life-- Uncle Thomas
