dc.description.abstractLetter to Alex. Hamilton, Post Office, Queenston, from Robert F. Gourlay, St. Catharines. The letter concerns the death of his daughter Jessie. He writes that she died on Monday night, and he fears that his third daughter, Helen, will go the same way. He states that she was about to leave Seafield under the care of Jean, his oldest daughter, for a warmer climate, while Catherine (the youngest) remains with her Grandmother. He asks that he show this to Mrs. R. Hamilton and then send it to his brother John. The enclosed letter is to be mailed and charged to his inland postage account, January 9, 1839.
