Dear [?]

I here unto send you a blank return for Statistics and hope you will oblige me by putting it up and returning it by the 21st May-

It is very [desirable?] that the statistics of the body should be obtained and I am sure you will see the need of them being as capable as possible if they will drawn up at all-

May we not expect to see you this year at our Meeting of Union? How much do we as a body need hearty corperation and paternal affection. It is very pleasing to have as much of them as we have but we want them still more fully-

We will remember Dr. Yeomans of [Brantford??]-he has been called to his rest but died in faith - his wife I fear will not be long after him-

Hoping you will feel it wise to comply with the above request.

In haste

I remain

Yours very cordially
