Waterford NY
April 16th 1889
Dear Hattie.
We [?were?] glad to hear
by the last mail from China of
your safe arrival in HongKong.
The last letter from you [--that we--]
in this country was from [?Owaba?]
just after that freight train tried
to smash up your car. From your
later letters, you seem to
have rather a rough Ocean voyage;
and withal had a little taste of
sea-sickness. You will hereafter
be better able to sympathize with
people who undergo that affliction.
I did not have the least touch
of it on my way home.
Spring is coming on here
now and we hardly need a fire
except in the morning and evening.
We have a little frost now and
there. A little more than a week
ago we had a short trip to the

Green mountains. Bella has a
cousin there who is a congregational
minister. The name of the place
is Arlington. We all went
leaving [?Troy?] Friday afternoon.
We found quite a difference in
the temperature as we got up
into the mountains. Around
Waterford the snow had all
disappeared but we found the
mountains covered with snow.
and the windows would be
covered with frost in the morning.
If [--would--] looked quite natural
to see the sugar camps with
pails all hung to the trees.
It was right in the midst of
the season and we got some
of the benefit of it. Vermont
is rather noted I believe as a
place for making maple sugar.
I saw in the paper a notice
of one town [?Dauly?] where I think
the article stated that the people

made $75,000 worth of syrup &
sugar a year.
I have been attending a
meeting of the Troy Presbytery at
[?Ahoes?] last evening and this forenoon
to see how they get along here
at home. I concluded by noon
to day that things were going
along all right and came home.
Of course the meeting was for
transacting business. They con-
tinue this afternoon and this
evening.
There is to be a popular
meeting at Albany to morrow
evening in connection with the
Woman's Annual meeting or Northern
New York at which Dr Atterbury
is expected to speak. We are
expecting to go down to hear
him
We are all in usual health
I think now that my voice is
really getting stronger. It has not
seemed to be decidedly improved
till about a month ago, but I presume

now it will keep on getting stronger.
Dr Riggs is still not able to preach
so I still alternate with Dr Dickson
in taking the morning Sabbath service
at the Waterford Church.
Please tell Mr Henry that I
have received his statement officially
that I am alternate Commissions
to the Gen Assembly - that I was glad
to get his letter and will answer
soon. Mr SFulton was appointed
Commissioner and as I fully
expect he will be home I do
not contemplate being a member
of the Assembly.
I presume you were
taken rather by surprise when
you learned what Mr Wisner
and Sophie had been about
I hope his health will continue to
improve.
With love from us all
-Henry.

纽约沃特福德
1889 年 4 月 16 日
亲爱的海蒂。
我们 [?were?] 很高兴听到
通过来自中国的最后一封邮件
安全抵达香港。
你的最后一封信
在这个国家来自小羽
就在那辆货运列车尝试之后
砸烂你的车。从你的
后来的信,你似乎
有相当艰难的远洋航行;
并且有点味道
晕船。你以后会
能够更好地同情
遭受这种痛苦的人。
我没有一点接触
在我回家的路上。
春天在这里来临
现在,我们几乎不需要火
除了早上和晚上。
我们现在有一点霜
那里。一周多一点
以前我们有一次短途旅行

青山绿水。贝拉有一个
那里的堂兄是一个公理会
部长。地点名称
是阿灵顿。我们都去了
星期五下午离开特洛伊。
我们发现有很大的不同
我们起床时的温度
进入山区。大约
沃特福德的雪拥有一切
消失了,但我们找到了
被雪覆盖的山。
窗户会是
早上被霜覆盖。
如果会看起来很自然
看糖营
桶都挂在树上。
就在这中间
这个季节,我们得到了一些
的好处。佛蒙特
我认为是相当值得注意的
制作枫糖的地方。
我在报纸上看到了一个通知
我认为的一个小镇 Dauly
文章指出,人民

制作了价值 75,000 美元的糖浆
糖一年。
我参加了一个
特洛伊长老会在
昨晚和今天上午
看看他们在这里相处得如何
在家。我中午结束
到事情进展的那天
一路走好,就回家了。
会议当然是为了
交易业务。他们今天下午继续,这
晚上。
一定要有人气
明天在奥尔巴尼开会
晚上与
妇女年会或北方
纽约的阿特伯里医生
预计会发言。我们是
期待下去听

我们都很健康
我想现在我的声音是
真的越来越强了。它没有
似乎得到了明显的改善
直到大约一个月前,但我想

现在它将继续变得更强大。
里格斯博士仍然不能讲道
所以我还是和迪克森医生交替
参加早上的安息日礼拜
在沃特福德教堂。
请告诉亨利先生,我
已正式收到他的声明
我是候补委员会
到大会 - 我很高兴
得到他的信并会答复
很快。 S Fulton 先生被任命
专员和我一样
期待他会回家我做
不考虑成为会员
大会的。
我想你是

你学到了什么威斯纳先生
和索菲差不多
希望他的健康继续
提升。
带着我们所有人的爱
-亨利。
