Dear Brother.
I was very happy to hear
from home, am glad to know that they are all
doing well. Our business is slacking up a
considerable since the opening of navigation - but
still doing a good passenger business. The
passenger receipts of Month of March was $32.752
receipts for freight $21.572, or as near as
I can recollect, however this goes to show that
the road is paying well. I will be up to
Erie next week, or as soon as one of our office
clerks returns. I am well, like the place very
well, have nothing more of interest to tell
you now until I go up, but remain
as ever
Your brother
Thomas Carse
