Saint John’s Nfld 17th Decr 1828. My dear Friends George Lilly and Henry Hawson, As I am about to embark for Britain and as more or less danger attends crossing the Atlantic, I think it right before I sail to express my wishes as to the disposal of my property in the event of my not returning again to this Island.


I beg Mr. Hawson’s acceptance of a Bedstead (now in the S. side store) with the curtains (Blue) belonging to it, and Mr. Lilly’s acceptance of the Bedstead and Curtains in his house belonging to me.

I remain my dear Friends Affectionately yours James Cross.

Certified Correct
D. M. Browning
