The Eassons and the Hoyts

Two Hundred Years of Family and Community Life in Nova Scotia

Letter, Michael Francklin, Windsor, to David Easson

Concerning difficulties over payment for the lumber ("you may depend upon it that you will be carried to Prison if the order is not paid"); he cannot pay Easson unless Mr. Williams provides a certificate for the boards. The Acadians have asked for Easson to travel to "St. Johns" [presumably Ile Saint-Jean, i.e. Prince Edward Island]. Francklin offers to increase Easson's pay to £5 a month "if you can't fall into some Partnership with the Accadians more Profitable."  31 January 1781.  2 pages : 30 x 36 cm.   Easson family Nova Scotia Archives MG 1 vol. 3478 A/123
