385. Stephen Jones to Gideon White, in receipt of letter. He is glad to hear that White has "a very Pleasant prospect". "God knows I am (from habit) as little acquainted with settling New Countries as any Loyalist now in Nova Scotia, nevertheless I have not been the most negligent. I drew my Land with the Regiment, one Hundred miles up St. Johns River, where I built a House 30 by 20, and put a family in it, and fifteen months ago I came to this place, since which have cut down and cut up twenty odd Acres, half of which is fit for immediate Improvement; I raised this Summer two Acres of Wheat and as much of Oats & Potatoes and in a few days shall put into the Ground four Acres fo Wheat and Rye." Messages to friends. Holograph.
