Letter from Frederick Foster, Whitehall Yard to Henry Boyd.



Dear Sir, Mrs Connor and family will probably not be ready to go yet, but if she does come you may advance her the value of £10 either in passage tickets to New York or in necessities for the voyage. The others (all girls) are to have their passages and tickets to Port Dover and though I have told them to get their own provisions and clothing yet as many of them are very poor indeed, I shall not grudge anything which you think necessary at the last minute, either provisions or clothes but you understand that if I offer it them beforehand their friends dont come forward to help them at all. When they arrive at Port Dover, they are to find their way themselves seven miles to Captain Fuller at Simcoe to whom I will write next post. The Tiernans married couple only go to New York at my expense. Your Obedient Frederick Foster
