Absent Uncle & Aunt,

Having heard from you some four or five years ago I feel quite anxious to hear from you again. I have written you once before this but have received no answer, perhaps you did not receive it, but I hope this will not fail to reach you. My dear uncle, aunt, and cousin I never have been permitted to meet with you yet still there is a lingering hope that we may someday meet. Hope: what comfort, what consolation there is in that one little word, it is a beacon to the soul of man. Take away hope and we take away the enjoyment of prosperity, the most happy, the most prosperous, without hope would soon become the most wretched the poor and afflicted without it would sink at once in to the gulf of despair, extinguish hope and you extinguish life, for who could live without it? It is the last lingering light to the human breast. Worldly hope has always some supposed foundation on which it relies but Christian hope has for a foundation the rock of truth, Gods most holy words. 

Jesus the Almighty conquer says, fear not for I am with you; does not Christ dwell in our hearts by faith? Is not Christ in us the life of faith, the life of love, the hope of glory, than let us be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. “Fear not He is thy shield and thy exceeding great reward.” When thou passeth through the waters I will be with thee.

And father is still hoping that he may someday meet you and it is at his request that I write this letter he wants to know where you all are and if grandmother is still living. Oh! How he wants to see her and if she still lives and it is so he possibly can come. I will insist on his coming out there. Oh! How I wish he could see his dear mother, sisters and brothers once more. I know full well it would be a great consolation to all of them. If I can persuade him to come I shall come with him, but if it is the will of the Lord before three years rolls round I shall visit some of my father’s relation. I am now spending the winter at my brothers in Allegany, my parents reside in Columbus, Warren Co, Pa.; they have lived there now over three years. I had a letter from them a few days ago mother and father were well, mother said if I wrote you I must give her best respects to all. You will please excuse me if I do not write a very long letter for it is rather difficulty to write to one whom I have never seen, but one whom I hope to see. When you write will you please write all the particulars concerning uncles, aunts, and grandmother as far as you know. I will now close saying hoping that this will find you all well, may happiness surround you on every side, may your ways be the ways of righteousness and may your paths be strewed with roses. May you never know one sorrowful moment is the ardent prayer of your Niece Polly Abbey. Please excuse all mistakes for it is written in haste, write soon. 

Please direct your letter Allegany

Dear and respected friends

Two weeks have rolled around since I wrote you last but I shall not allow only one day to pass from the time that I received your good and kind letter until I answer it. Last eve, your letter was joyfully received and now to omit it is with unspeakable pleasure that I answer it. I was glad to hear that grandmother was well but was sorrow to hear that your aunts’ health was not very good. I am in hopes she will be careful in regard to her cold for this season this far has been very bad and there are many here dropping off with consumption and it was caused merely by taking a cold. I was intending this summer to take a school but by teaching last winter I caught a very severe cold and my health not being very good this spring it would not permit of it. If I had done so it was my intention to come out there in the fall in company with my father for he cannot afford the means for himself and me to, neither do I ask it of him, for I though the only child have cost him considerable. My health was always poor up to the age ten, most always under the dr. care. At the age of ten, I got so that I was able to go to school, I had been some previous to this though not much, for four or five years he keep me in school most of the time in the Randolph Academy (where we then lived) from that time I have taught school until the present time losing but one term. If it had not been for the tender care of a good mother and father undoubtedly long before this time I should have been laid in my grave. And how much do I own them for their watchful care but I hope that I can repay them by being a kind and dutiful daughter unto them. You spoke dear uncle of our circumstances, perhaps it was pride that forbid one of [willing] for I think there is a little of it reigning in my [] perhaps too much of it; I think I have a little of my fathers & mothers, enough to bring me equal to them. My parents, dear uncle, are far from being rich though think not that we are in poverty my father affords a comfortable living, four years this last winter he moved from Randolph, Catt. Co., N.Y. to where he now lives, my sister Abigail got married and moved there first. Father then purchased fifty acres of land and moved, I think now he has it near paid for he has got him a good house though not all completed he owned himself a nice span of horses but he wrote me not long since that he had sold them, I think it must of been to of help pay for his place. Father always worked hard through life, and often have I heard him speak of his dear and beloved mother who so tenderly watched over him in his infancy and how he would like to go and see her but the time and money would cost him so much that he has never felt able to do so, but of lately I have heard him speak of her often then ever and express a great desire to see her. I now think that he will come out there as soon as he can get things straightened around so he can leave, perhaps he will come in the spring or fall following if he should do so I should try to come with him for I have a great desire to come and see you all. I expect now in a few weeks that a cousin from (Montrose, Susquehanna, Pa.) my mothers, 1 brothers child, will be out after me to go there and spend the summer there. The distance that I am now from home is about seventy miles; all of my brothers & sisters are married except one sister, a year ago last September I lost a brother perhaps I have told you if so I have forgotten, after these long years of suffering with the [] he was taken from this world to seek one that is far better where pain and suffering do no come, yes my brother Ephraim has left us and deeply do we feel his loss for he was a good, kind brother, not many may know the depth of that true brotherly love

Uncle you wished to know the distance from Buffalo to where my parents reside I cannot tell you only by railroad from Buffalo to Westfield, it is 57 mi! Westfield I believe is as near us as the railroad comes from Westfield to our house, it is about 38mi, perhaps a little more, from there to Columbus village is a good plank road and stages running daily and we live five miles out of the village. Perhaps you do not know where Westfield is it is in Chautauqua Co., N.Y., situated on or near the lake about 8 miles this side of Erie. Now I will close this letter hoping to soon receive an answer. Give my best respects to all, I shall write to my parents tonight and send your letter, when I hear from them again I will write you. Please excuse all mistakes now, dear uncle do not let what I have written hinder you from coming out here but come if you possibly can and bring aunt with you. How glad my dear father and mother would, I will not say much about fathers coming now, I will write more when I hear from him. Please give my love to grandma, I will now close hoping soon to receive an answer,

Your affectionate niece,

Polly Lorinda Abbey

Polly has been able to reach Thomas/Lurenda and either she has just received her first response (but sent another letter hoping to reach them. Or Thomas’ first letter to her did not include answers to her questions. I feel as though it is the first since in this letter Polly goes into her “life story”

Grandmother – meaning Phineas’ mother Mary Polly Winters (1777-1869)

Aunts health? – which one

Polly was sick as a child, barely able to go to school until she was 10. When she was 10 she went to the Randolph Academy from 4 or 5 years. Than begun to teach. Stopped teaching because she fell ill, almost died ill.

Four years this last winter he moved from Randolph, Catt. Co., N.Y. to where he now lives – move to Columbus, Warren. Abigail got married and moved to Columbus with her husband, later joined by her parents – parents purchased 50 acres

Cousin from Montrose, Susquehanna, PA. is coming for a visit. (mothers nephew?)

All siblings are married except one and a year ago her brother, Ephraim passed away

Dear Respected Uncle & Aunt,

After as long an absence I have once more safely reached my home. I arrived here on Tuesday last found my father well, mother not very well but not so as to give up, sister Ab was quite sick better now, as for myself I am well but have not as yet got exactly rested from the fatigue of my journey. I hope that this will find my uncle, aunt and cousins well. Also hope that they will have the kindness to excuse me for my long silence I should have written here this time but have been waiting until I returned home. Oh! How sorrow I am to think that kind uncle and aunt should visit my parents and I could not be at home to visit with them. How deeply do I regret my departure when I received your letter, I was than intending to start for home the Friday following certainly thinking that I should be in time to see you but perhaps it is all for the best. I shall hope on hope ever, perhaps I may see you yet. What meaning, what happiness is created from that little word hope, it is a beacon to the soul of man, it cheers us on, it lifts us up almost in the hour of despair. Our heavenly father who knows all things allows us to hope that all things may be for the best lest our hope be in him.

I thank you dear uncle for leaving those likenesses of aunts and cousins, I am highly pleased with them. Give my best respects to A. Henry, the one that wrote me a few lines and copied your letter, I took it to be a gentleman’s hand writing. I should be very glad to hear from him again and from some of the other cousins. Perhaps I am taking too much liberty in asking them to write but dear uncle you now know what for a place my parents live in it is lonely here for one; no society near none that I wish to mingle in and how much company, how pleasant, how it passes away lonely hours to sit down and read over letters that you have received from a friend such I trust you all are. We have one friend that the world cannot deprive us of, go where we will He is there He can be here with me in the wild woods of Pennsylvania as well as in the crowed city or in the halls of learning.

                                Father, I bless thy gentle hand;

                                How kind was thy chastising nod;

                                That forced my conscience to a stand; 

                                And brought my wondering soul to God,

Father and mother send their love to you all, mother she has not felt well since you left she thinks perhaps it is because you did not make a longer visit. I wish you would tell some of them dear cousins to come and make us a visit to. I do not know for certain whether father will come out there this fall or not if he does I shall try and come with. I hear him speak of you often, he wishes to be remembered to grandmother. I do the same I would that I lived near her so as to help comfort and cheer her in her old age. Give my respects to all, write as soon as convenient for you to do so,

From ever your friend and niece.

Columbus. Oct 19th 56

My dear uncle & aunt,

Would that I could see you today, take you by the hand and inquire after your health, but seeing that I cannot do it really, I shall have to do it by the aid of pen. How is my dear uncle and grandmother and finally all? I hope you are well; this day is the Sabbath and I am seated here by the table writing to those who in my heart ever shall hold dear, never can I forget that lovely visit nor those dear cousins. Oh! That I could enjoy more of their society, but we have met and parted. Oh! It is hard to part with friends, I know I feel it. Among the many [proofs] of warmth of feeling and genuine friendship, there is not one so peculiar adapted to call forth all the finer feelings, the God like attributes of our nature as the parting from a dear friend, such I have left far behind me uncles, aunts, cousins, and a dear and beloved grandmother, who watched over my father in his infancy. I think it was hard for me to part, what was it for a mother to part with a son, or brother to part with sisters, the society of a brother I know but little about yet I think it must be hard to part with a brother who created for us and enjoyed with us the simple sports of our infant years.

                                                Those sunny sunny hours of childhood,

                                                How soon, how soon they pass away! 

                                                Like flowers, like flowers in the wild wood,

                                                That bloom but to decay.”

And we know it must be hard for a mother to part with her son whom she has watched over with care and anxiety. Many a time perhaps she did not feel able to raise her head from the pillow, many a time has she listened with pride & pleasure mingled with many a burst of joyous laughter, to his plans of the future. His path to fame and glory his certain and rapid ascent to the pinnacle of fortune, and sung for him the old nursing song “Rock a bye baby, on the tree top.” We have all parted, we have hope left that we may meet again. Hope that divine after burning in the breast of mortals, flings far and wide its cheering beams and lights us over obstacles almost insurmountable to other eyes;

Now to our journey home we arrived safely at Westfield that night at seven o’clock, the next day father went home I stayed there until Saturday than took the stage for home. Found mother well, sister Abbie not very well, her husband was quite sick during our absence is better now so as to be a round. Oh dear uncle how I wish I could see you today but that wish is in vain. I am afraid it always will be, but dear uncle you will please excuse me for not writing more for sister Abbie is reading and it disturbs me so I cannot write, (but uncle I have not got the hoop skirt on today.) At mother & father sends their love to all. Oh is cousin James married yet? If so, I wish him much joy. Tell grandmother not to get the blues, give my respects to all and write soon, let us know how you enjoyed your visit.

From your affectionate niece, P. L. Abbey.

COMMITTED SUICIDE

Last Monday morning Mr. J. B. Strong of this city was found in an unsensible condition in his room. Medical aid was called in and an investigation showed that he had bled nearly to death from a small wound in his left arm which had severed the main artery. He was taken care of, and about 3 o'clock of that day died. An inquest was held and the evidence showed that he was greatly troubled about various things and for several days he had been carrying a razor with the supposed purpose of cutting his wife's throat. (This idea being received from his remarking that he had acted a d----d fool for not killing himself and a former wife whom he had left, and that when he and his present wife could not get along they would both go together.) The evidence also showed that he had not eat (sic), drank or slept for four or five days, and that he was found in the morning as above stated, in a pool of blood four or five feet across and an inch deep with a razor and a bandage near by; he is supposed to have cut the artery with the razor and corded his arm with the bandage. He was buried Tuesday in Myrtle Cemetery

Sprinkling Wagon is Hit by Street Car and Driver Is Killed Almost Instantly.

While driving a sprinkling wagon, E. M. Fancher of No.148 North Avenue 18 was struck by West Eleventh street car No. 584 at Darwin street and Avenue 20, about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and almost instantly killed. His skull was fractured at the base, and it is believed that his neck was broken. Fancher was driving down the middle of the track when the accident occurred. The street car came up behind him and when the wheels struck the wet rails they slid. Motorman F. S. Rucker attempted every means to stop the car before it crashed into the wagon. Fancher was thrown from his seat and fell on his head. He still held onto the reins and was dragged several feet before W. V. Beaman of No. 929 Darwin street, who saw the accident, reached him. An ambulance was called but Fancher died before it arrived. His body was taken to Bresee Bros.'s morgue and an inquest will be held today. Fancher leaves a family.
