The following letter to Mr. Blunsom, who, as it will have been seen, had treated him with constant kindness, and done him much good service, will be read with interest.
|St John's College, Newfoundland,
January 7, 1856.
|I received your kind letter by the December
mail, and am very sorry to hear of your illness. The weather here is very cold, I feel it more than at
Cape York. I have begun to skate, and find it a
pleasant amusement. There is a lake a little
distance from the College, called, 'Quidi Vidi,' on which we practise. The Bishop is very kind and good to me. College here is not so large and fine a
place as St. Augustine's: nor are there so many
students. I hope that all my kind friends at
Canterbury are quite well. Please remember me
kindly to Mr. and Mrs. Gipps, and all at St.
Augustine's. With kind love to yourself,
|I remain, yours affectionately,
