Letter from Matthew Flinders to Ann Flinders (20 of 41) (FLI25) Page 5

P.S. — continued
      if it is the 19th dragoons I am acquainted with captain Henry
of that regiment, who I think would shew him some attention on my ac-
-count: he and his wife were prisoners in the Maison Despeaux with me. If
an opportunity for India offers itself I will write to captain H. concern-
-ing him.
      Remember me affectionately to my cousin William and Penelope
F. when thou hast an opportunity. It is very long since I have written to my
sister Susan, but pray aƒsure her that she is very dear to me. What thou say-
-est of her busineƒs not answering gives me pain. I think all my relations
are becoming unfortunate in their concerns: they are all miserably poor.
Notwithstanding my misfortunes I seem to be the luckiest in this respect
of the whole: my father was the principle support of the name, and it
seems as if I was destined to take his place.
      I have enjoyed very good health since I have been in this district.
It is much cooler here than near the town, being elevated about a
thousand feet above the level of the sea.
