Dear Mr. Marquette,

By the S.S. "Canada" leaving Liverpool on March 3rd we are sending out to the Dominion the following people and I shall be much obliged if you will kindly arrange for them to be met and looked after as usual, and I hope that you will have no difficulty in getting them past the Authorities. Many of them will have cards from Mr. Obed. Smith, but those who have been paid for privately will have my certificate to this effect. I will send you a complete list of all the party together with a draft for landing money by the next mail.
On January 27th I sent you full particulars about the following young men, and you may give them each £1 for landing money, and I hope that you have got places for them.
