Dear Father


  W are now in short distance of a brig which presume is bound to the U. S. I being below did not know he was in sight until just now –


  I hear the 1st hail so I have not much time.


  I am quite well and have been so all the voyage but a few days sea sickness at first.  I like the life very well, we shall make the C D IslS in a few days.  I shall send you a long letter very soon.


                                                            My love to all of you


                                                            Your affectionate Son


                                                                        Wm R
