For Mr. James Newton as he is going to North America for him to be so good as write to me in the course of the summer 1835 - and let me know how they are all making out in America - and what he thought of his passage across the sea, and what he thought of his journey from Quebec to York in Upper Canada and how they got through all the rapids in the river - and what he thought of the long Sow and the other rapids - and how they are all keeping their health - and how they are all succeeding in business - I wish you all prospaers and a pleasant passage across the Atlantic ocean - and I wish you a safe and a pleasant journey up the river Sent Lawarence and I wish you all much success in business when you all arrive at your destination - and I sincerely wish that you may all long enjoy good health and comfort together - so I must bid [?] you all a due and a long farewell.
If you should be pleased to write to me
