Washington, D.C.


My dear Sisters,

Your note has just reached me, and as it is inclined to rain today, it is just as well you have postponed the visit to the Capitol.  I will meet you tomorrow at 11.30 A.M. and will be better able then to tell you whether I can go to Mt. Vernon.  Please thank Miss H. for the kind _________.

I will remain to go with you on Monday next if you wish it—it is the longest possible time that I can stay & must then be in Baltimore on time to take the [steamer?] down the Bay [that?] evening at 5.00 P.M.

Ever your affectionate Brother,



Miss Ellie Reynolds
