Letter from (Sir) John Franklin to Ann Flinders (2 of 5) (FLI27) Page 3

The Bedford – contrary to almost general expectation if not
wish (mine certainly) is expected to take out Troops to America
but we cannot learn positively where or when we may go;
in fact all this I surmise – we have however been refitted and
are ordered to keep in readineƒs – I suspect we will not sail
before the 1st week in September – if then.

Should you be equal to the Task I shall be much relieved by hearing
from you. However I beg you will not put your feelings to
any great Trouble – Accept my sincere condolence and sympathy
and believe me ever to be
                        [Franklin's signature has been cut out from here]
Should Mrs or Miƒs Tyler be with you I beg you to present
my best respects

PS. Wiles returns his best thanks and begs me to acknowledge
the receipt of your letter
