or neglect to mention you in any letters or Eddie either 'tis not that
I forget you or him I always think of home and those most dear to me -

dellyo Last week upon a Holliday day in the Church 1 went down the coast
on the Gulf about 10 miles and I procured some beautiful specimens of
curious shells and sea which I shall bring home The whole
Island as you know is composed of canal and a few days before I was at
another place and some very pretty specimans and some day I intend to go
across the harbour to what is called Cassa-blanca the other side of the
Moro-Castle on the Sea Shore and they say there are plenty In the 8
number of the Cuban Herald you will see a description of the ceremony I
was present at when the Capt General conferred the title of Knight of the
