Randolph, VT


Washington, Aunt Chase, Mrs. Blodget


Randolph Dec. 5. 1826—

At your house

My Dear Uncle—

The enclosed was received this morning which I have thought proper to return to you at Washington, in some expectation that my father may be there. Perhaps it would be well to inform the Department that my father has left Randolph and that it will be no longer necessary to direct to this place.

Aunt Chase has received your letters from Woodstock and the one from New Haven this morning. We are all pleased to hear that you have met with no accident thus far and that your health is good. All your family are well, excepting Mrs. Blodget, whose health tho’ not good I think is slowly improving. Betsey has been troubled with a lame neck but she can now move it as swift as usual.

The weather is beautiful for this season and every thing goes on finely—I have but a moment to stay, and must hasten to close this letter. I shall probably write soon more at large. Present my dutiful respects to my Father if you see him in Washington and

Believe me your affectionate

Friend and Nephew

Geo. Chase

Letter to Dudley Chase
