letter of June, 1856 from Robert (123), to his sisters Jane (125) and Hester (126)


Sunday June 1856

Dear Sisters Jane and Hester

Doubtless you concider by this time that I am a follower of the ancient adage, viz, out of sight out of mind. but no it is not so. Many an excuse could I make for not answereing your letters but I will not make any. for it is my Candid oppinion that no matter what excuse I would make it would not be sufficient.

I supose you have been informed by this time. how that I have left John Georges. I am stopping up Princes Street with two young men who have letterly started business in the shoe line. where George Cressall keep. I have barganed to stop with them until October next. I like the place very much. They are both single. There names are Allen & Curtis. Allens sister keeps house for us. but she goes home on Sundays. So we take turn about in cookeing. I wish you could see me getting the meals today (as this is my turn) you would laugh.

I was home three weeks ago all one week and busey. The country looks well. I had a pleasant time of it. the boats are running opposition to Bytown. they take for nothing some days.

We had a grate day in Kingston on the queens Birth day. Brother William and Samuel was up they seemed to enjoy it very much. I wish you had been over. I am sure you would have enjoyed it too. when are you comeing. when you come perhaps I will go down home with you. come soon.

Where is the Book you spoke of lending me. I must bring this too a close as six o'clock is strikeing. and I must go and get tea. Hester you must write me another letter. I am glad to perceive your improvement. give me all the particulars.

All are well.

                                                                                                     Your Neglectful
                                                                                                                      Brother
                                                                                                                              R. Anglin
