Jas. D B Fraser, Esq., Pictou

Halifax, 1 May 1846

Dear Brother

The invoice and your three last letters came safe to hand but as I was very busy and nothing particular to notice did not wright

I have sent you two bags and have two more with the mangle sorted* ready but it will not be able to go tomorrow as the coach is very heavily ladened

I am very sorry to hear of Williams misfortune but hope he will soon be better  

Mr. H and Caroline left yesterday morning and will I expect be in Pictou before you receive this.  Caroline does not wish to stay longer than Mr. Hyde I told her I would write you so that they would not persuade her to remain. I wish you could spare time to examine her teeth before she leaves.  Caroline presented me with a very nice gold watch.  I will have yours cleaned and returned by first good opportunity.  I am certainly obliged to you for so long a lone and was about buying it from you.  I have sent the papers by Mr. Hyde which I suppose you have received before this

I will ascertain if the glass can be had and write you by next week 

Say to Dr. Anderson that there is a parcel of varying* apparel* for him on board the Albion which I will have entered and sent to him by first vessel*

I have been very busy but have your things all ready except the corks which will be ready in a few days

Your afft Brother


Do not forget to send Caroline back by Mr. H  She will likely pay you a visit when Mr. H comes back and Mrs. H is busy cleaning house and we want her home
