My Dear Cooper,

I am in receipt of your valued favor of the 2nd September and sincerely feel for you all under your many trying afflictions, but we must be satisfied with the will of God. It is a world of troubles and trials. You must excuse me not writing you more frequently. I was all last winter in St. Johns. Went to the seal fishery. Lost £ 600 and I have been all summer trading to the States. Done very well. I leave for Saint Johns in about 10 days and will next Spring try my luck to the ice. I send you a few papers. I drop you these few hurried lines for the present and will in a few days write you a long particular letter.

My very best respects to all your family

In the mean time, yours very Truly

Daniel Flynn
