Below I have added links to Canadian Information which I have gathered and some links to others pages.
I have just started on this page and I am transfering information daily to this page so please come back soon.
I am writing you from the field of battle. All is well here. Winter quarters are a bit dull and all I can think when I see this, Very Smokey, fire is back home and the family.
Three long years as elapsed now since I left Ontario. As I mentioned before I left that the money was too good to pass. With the bounty I will be able to buy a descent farm where we will no longer have to worry about payments on loans.
How is our son. He must be 5 by now. I received the mirrow image of him you sent me. How proud I am of him. He is growing to be a very strong and good man.
Sgt. Johnston as been sent home to Michigan due to Rheumatism caused by continuous exposure and I was promoted 6 Sergeant in his place. This will give me an increase of 10$ per month.
I joined for the bounty and not the cause. Now 3 years later I find myself re-enlisting for the cause and not the bounty. It is funny how things change.
Knoxville is a pleasant place but not as pleasant as Bytown is to me. They say we will go on leave in spring. Maybe you could meet me in Detroit as the voyage to Canada would only allow me a few days with you. By meeting in Detroit we will have approximately 2 weeks.
I have enclosed 20$ and there are another 40$ owed to me for the last 2 months pay. Due with this as you think is best.
That is all for now. Give my Love to Robert and tell him his father will return soon.
