1843 (Feb) from Mary Hodgson to Rev. John Smithurst

Place: Red River Settlement

From: Mary Hodgson

To: Reverend John Smithurst

Details: 1pp

Notes: Mary Hodgson writes from Whitby to tell him of her recent marriage. The embossed letterhead was likely a wedding present.

The small-sized letter with a lack of seal indicates it was enclosed within a larger letter forwarded to the Church Missionary Society in London. The mail was carried by Hudson Bay Company's spring supply ship to York factory and from there the letter would travel by boat up the Nelson River, across Lake Winnipeg and then up the Red River to the Indian Settlement.

Hodgson, Mary
