TranscriptLiverpool 14th April 1853

Dear Brother
I had a very pleasant trip
to Fleetwood and then a long time in
the road to Liverpool I was not sick
coming and I think I will not be
sick going over We did not get
in the vessel that we intended to go
in as she was full of Passengers and
we had to look out for another and
could not get one for Philadelphia
and had to take one for Quebec her
name is Sarah Lands it sails on
tomorrow the 15th
There will not be much difference
in going that way as we will get
from Quebec to Philadelphia in about
one day I thought it better to do
this rather than stay here any longer
The vessel that Hugh Conn went
out in arrived here last evening
I need not give you any adress as
we will be away before you get this
Hoping you are all well and
not uneasy about me as I did not
think long before I left you
I Remain Your
Affectionate Brother
Wm [William?] McElderry’
