We had more than twenty high floods in our river all after other this summer some of them a man could not ride a horse over the bridge. There is no work for the labouring class of man in this country and traidsman is idle. Your mother, sisters and brothers join me in sending our love to you and wife and family and my poor James and Robert John and my very dear Sarah Jane and Joseph and all they children.
