Letter of appreciation from some 1825 Settlers

R't. Honorable Earl Bathurst
Sec'y. of State for the Colonies

12th December 1826

Please Your Lordship

We the undersigned Emigrants sent to Canada by Govt. in 1825 and settled by the Hon'ble. P. Robinson in the Township of Douro, beg leave to express to your Lordship our sincere thanks for the distinguished kindness we have experienced.
We have been brought from a Country where we had many difficulties to contend with, and supported here to the time at the expense of the Government our every want has been anticipated and provided for. And independance not only brought wither our reach, but actually bestowed upon us.
We have furnished our justly respected Superintendent with a particular account of what we have done since our arrival, by which your Lordship will perceive what we have accomplished and that we have not abused the goodness of the Gov't. by idleness.

We trust our orderly conduct as members of society and steady Loyalty as subjects of the British Crown will evince the gratitude we feel for the many favours we have received. That the blessings of a grateful people may surround the Throne of his Majesty is the sincere prayer of

Your Lordships
most respectful Humble Serv'ts.
