Sunday Morning

My dear Susan Ann

I arrived here last night after a villanous passage of 2 days and 2 nights - the steamer being disabled and there being no choice but on Schooner. Calm light head winds and hot sun were our companions and not very pleasant ones. This is the furthest limit of my travels. I shall be here till Wednesday return to Pictou in the steamer do business there in 2 days and return to ? forthwith Meantime God bless you all I sent you several letters and £25 from Truro.

faithfully yours,
Jos Howe
