Montreal, Aug 24 1878
Dear Sir:

Yours of 13th has reached me here where we are detained by the severe illness of Mr Edwards. I have forwarded it to Mr Johnson (as I think it would relieve his mind of any feeling if any there is) + asked him to write you personally, as I may be kept here for several weeks yet. I beg you to believe that I had no doubt of your fidelity to assurances, + can see your embarrassment on this subject. But I will add as due to his kindly frankness that I think his public service would be promoted if the S. H. B. came to feel as the law is that grey & not they [?] designate the vocal officers to be engaged [?] in that service, + in [ILLEGIBLE] any reference to this case I hope some day they will feel it.
Very truly yours
Geo. Edmunds
