West Parade Halifax

January 2d 1843


In compliance with the request of Mr Saffery I forward the few garments my children have made for Africa and shall be glad if you can acquaint us with the probable time of Mr Clarke’s departure for Africa as I hope with the aid of a few friends to furnish a Box of clothes or other articles for Fernando Po.

Esteeming it a great privilege to be engaged in this work & earnestly desiring that the blessings of the Lord may rest on our beloved Missionary friends I remain yours in Xtian regard
