HAYES TO BRYAN
State of Ohio
Columbus, 20th January 1872
My dear Guy:
We are deeply pained to hear of your overwhelming loss.29
We sympathize with you--we sorrow with you-we feel it as an
affliction in our own family. I came from Fremont yesterday,
where I had spent a few days with Uncle on the occasion of his
seventy first birthday. Our talk was more than usual of you
and the comfort we had in your visit last summer. He will
share your grief. But what is all this? May God bless you
and give you the best consolation possible. I feel that to talk
of such a loss is mockery.
We go back to Cincinnati next week-we go back gladly not-
withstanding we have had a pleasant life here

BIRCHARD TO BRYAN
Fremont January 22/72
I this evening recd a letter from Hayes telling me of the
death of your wife. I cannot go to rest without telling you how
much I mourn with you. While you were here you told me so
much about her that I felt that she, like yourself, was one of
my dear Friends and had anticipated with pleasure a long visit
from you and her next summer but now my hope and prayer
is that we may both meet her in a better world
BRYAN TO BIRCHARD
Galveston, April 12th 1872.
My dear Mr. Birchard:
I do not know certainly that the letter I wrote to you was
sent or not, for fear that it was not I write to you again.
My dear old friend, your prompt words of sorrow were fully
appreciated, and opened up the flood gate of my heart. There
