MR No. 404—Regarding Examinations at Dansville

I have been trying to find time to write to you for some days but there is so much to be done I cannot do half I wish to. 6MR 346.1

Adelia and the children have been examined today. The doctor pronounces Adelia sick. We shall have their written prescriptions this week, then you can know more in regard to them. I think Dr. Jackson gave an accurate account of the disposition and organization of our children. He pronounces Willie's head to be one of the best that has ever come under his observation. He gave a good description of Edson's character and peculiarities. He enjoined upon him outdoor exercise and not much study. I think this examination will be worth everything to Edson.—Letter 6, 1864, p. 1. (To Brother and Sister Lockwood, September, 1864.) 6MR 346.2
