Letter, Lewis Blanchard, Montreal, Lower Canada, to Capt Abel Blanchard, Peacham, Vermont
Writing to his father, Lewis mentions that he has been absent from home for a year or more and has had "as good luck . . . as can be expected for a young man to start out into the world with out anything . . . ." Also mentions that he has heard by letter that his brother (Benjamin) and cousin are safely arrived at Osnabruck, Upper Canada (a township on the St. Lawrence), hoping to make bricks.
