Abstract
New York Convention will now pay delegates 4 dollars per day for attendance at this and the last Congress. Only five New York delegates are there, Colonel Morris and Mr. Lewis being absent, so JJ cannot leave until the session adjourns. Hopes to join her family in Elizabeth when they do. Will miss SLJ greatly for Christmas. But remembers how much more happiness they have than most people, so is grateful.
