      ****
      Henry Augustine Washington (1820-1858) was asked by Robert to assist in the wedding ceremonies (as best man?) according to the following letter:

      Blenheim May 5th 1849

      Dear Duval;
      On account of the irregularities of the mail, I did not receive, until a day or two since, your letter announcing your comtemplated marriage & requesting my services on that occasion. I need not assure you that it would give me a great pleasure to accept this invitation & to be with you at this happy crisis in your futures; but unluckily it cannot be - I am now detained at home by the indisposition of my Mother, who has been very ill, & who is now but slowly convallescent. As soon as her condition will allow, I have to go to Kentucky on businefs of importance to my father - You see, therefore. that it will be out of my power to be at your nuptials. All all that I can do is to send you my sincere wishes for your future happinefs - I do not know the lady personally, but know her family, which is eminent for worth & amaiability, & do not doubt that you are destined to realize all the felicity which you have so much reason to anticipate. That you may do so, & for many years, is the hope of

      Yr friend
