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
