Went to see Mike Sayers. -the man whom Dr Mitchell advised me to go to for a boat - and after a good deal of soft soaping he let me have the best dingee he had, at $1. per week. Cheap as dirt. It is a good boat, furnished with both oars & sails, and suits our purpose ex- actly. I am still in with Mr Jackson, and like him very well indeed. We sleep snug in our little tent, independent as can be. Like my boarding-place first- rate and will stick to it while I stay in this vicinity. The weather is lovely. and people kind.

    Write and tell me about you situa-

tion, and whether it will do for me to come home in a month. I expected a letter from you in yesterdays mail, but was disappointed. If you are at home give my kindest regards to the "folks", Mr Lucas, Fred, the shops, &e &e. Please write soon. Yours very truly Wm T. Hornaday.
