My Dear Moty,
On my return I found a letter I had intended to
send to you in answer to yours had been been mislaid and
not sent.I am sorry for this as you will have thought I had
neglected to [write?] [How?] [do?] I stand with regard to
money matters. I will send over œ500 to your credit at the
British American Bank, Quebec and you can repay yourself,
as I have not heard for some time of Flora or the family
I suppose they are going on [quiet?] the best way would be
I think for me to stop all payments, whatever [mantile?] they
send over the children I should have them sent to a decent
school where they could be kept well and until that is done
I shall not give them anything more. Let me know how our
account stands. the speech of Robt. [Robert?] Peel has
frightened the landed proprietors and I think we shall have
a sharp squeak for it at first, if I not married (sic) I should not
have cared a straw as I was much better and more in my element
with my [regiment?] than living at home. I have 3 young ones in
training in England what they will do for me I do not know. I
expect not much - I suppose it is not impossible that the [Region?]
business may recall us to Canada I should be very glad - I have been
on leave for a month there is no promotion going on - all the
people hang on I hope there may be a move soon but see not much
probability of one. I was sorry to hear that you had been a loser
at the first I hope that it was not much have you seen or heard> of Old Kendall lately he used to write me a line now and then
but I have not heard of him for the last year or more. Best
love to Mrs.Moty and the young ladies who are I suppose now
growing up fast.[Brargtally?] is in England but I have not seen
Yours very truly,
I have no news to give you - as you will see all the debates
which are the [only?] interesting affairs going on now-I
hardly suppose they will much effect the Canadas.
