Mr Martin

Dear Sir

It is with pleasure I inform you of the arrival of the John Chism yesterday, but owing to the low tides she cannot dock untill Tuesday, which I am very shure is not very gratifying to the crew to remain on board and within reach of the shore. I heard from Mrs LLoyds son that Willay and Charlay are both quite well and no doubt that before this day week you shall have them at home. I send you a card from which you will see I have altered my position And happy to say Very Satisfactory. hoping this will finde Mrs Martin yourself & family quite well & trusting you will excuse me for the liberty I have taken in conveying the news of the Ships arrival

I Remain

yours truly

Matt Lindsay
