My Dear Sons,
Before this reaches you, the afflicting news of the death of your affectionate father will have reached you and your brother, Mr. Winslow kindly undertaking the office. Your dear father made his exit on Tuesday, 27th September, and had it pleased Heaven to have lengthened his years, I should still have been happy to have discharged the duties of a wife with affectionate attention, which I trust I have faithfully done through life, and have reason to believe your dear father thought so. I was much afflicted Mr. Chipman could not be at the funeral of your dear father, but he was obliged to meet the commissioners at Passamaquoddy Bay. I must add, in justice to our friends, Dr. Paddock, and Ebenezer Putnam, it was conducted with respect and propriety. They followed as mourners Attorney General Bliss and little Chipman in deep mourning; and what, my sons, will afford you both great satisfaction, and what I have received much for myself, your dear father much wished to be interred with Judge Putnam in his vault. Mrs. Putnam readily complied with his desire; of this he was informed. I am grieved to have your joy dampened at the time of your nuptials; I should be very deficient if I did not mention the particular attention I have received. Mrs. Chipman has been particularity kind to me, Madame Putnam, her son and daughter, Col. and Mrs. DePeyster; each of their families putting themselves in mourn ing. A letter of thanks to Dr, Paddock and Mr. E. Putnam would not be amiss.

Unalterably your afflicted and affectionate mother,
Esther Sewell
