Letter Burgess, Peter 1899 pt2

Letter transcribed by Peter from one sent to Mr. Baker by the Captain of the Talbot.

" I tried to improve him for good in every possible manner but he did not correspond with my efforts I asked him to come to my choir practices and be present at celebrations and be a total abstainer but I notice that he was often being punished for infractions of discipline and at last he deserted perhaps life in Canada and being compelled to work may do him good

Believe me yours very sincerely Wilson ? sponsor

I copied this from the one he sent to Mr Baker he gave it to mother and she let me have it
