Albany, Dec. 1 1826||Dear Uncle,||As Mrs. Lupton[?] is going directly to Auburn I thought I would write a few lines to let you know that I am enjoying myself very much in Albany. I have not been here long enough to let you know what acquaintances I have formed. I have but few minutes to write and a very poor pen. We have company continually. I have no need of getting any money of Mr. Porter at present as I got some of Mr. Booth before I came. Give my love to Mother Aunt and all my friends.||I remain your affection niece||Eliza Akin||Excuse this writing and let no one see it not even Aunt.
