Letter from Matthew Flinders to Isabella Tyler (2 of 2) (FLI25) Page 3

Having many letters to write, and amongst others to Mr
and my beloved wife who will inform you further,
I conclude with assuring my dear Isabella of the af-
fectionate regards
                of her demi-brother and friend
                            Mattw Flinders

N.B. This letter being written from an island off
      Africa, on the south side of the Equator, by
      one who has three times made the voyage
round the world, seen all manner of things, sea-fights,
shipwrecks, the anthropophagi, and men "whose heads do
"grow beneath their shoulders," it is to be considered as
a curiosity, and put into the casket accordingly: au-
trement, vous verrez: Prenez garde à vous. Je viendrai dans
un tourbillon, et vous menacerai d'avoir trop de bon sens.
