My dear Lord-

June 4 1834

I have been too long in thanking you for the very interesting letters you sent me, they are so interesting that I cannot part with them yet, but I hope before long to return them to you. I expect to go to Putney for one day on Monday, & may perhaps prepare another packet to send by, or leave with, Miss Wood, who I suppose is still there. Some months ago I ventured to write myself to Bishop Chase, and gave him an account of a little Society for English friends and Colonial Settlers, for collecting valuable information both for the benefit of the members themselves and for Settlers abroad. The plan is to arrange any thing that is worth preserving into the form of an Album or [any] short periodical paper, and thus to keep up a mutual interest between the Colonies & the Mother Country. From what I saw of Bishop Chase I felt as if his mind would catch the intention, and having alluded to it in my letters to him I venture to send you No 1 of the [Anual] Album, written upon large paper & with one page clear that you may send it to him in the form of [a] letter & write upon the [turnings] down. [If] double postage will not be the consequence of enclosing this note to him within the Album I should like him to see it, in order to save you the trouble of telling him that No 13 contains a [little] map of the United States, and the beginning of the Memoirs of his own life which was given to me by Mr Marriott. it reaches only to the Appeal for Ohio, which I have, & from which I hope to continue the interesting history & bring it down to the present time by the help of your letters. I have been so afraid of putting this revered Servant of the Lord, to unnecessary expense that I have [checked] myself in writing to him, but if you will give me leave to send the numbers to you by [degrees], I shall have great pleasure in doing so, and you can perhaps forward them as you have opportunity. If this should be attended with any difficulty to you I have lately become acquainted with an American lady Mrs [R]and who would in future take charge of the papers if you will forward what I now send. I beg my kind regards to Mrs Ward and your daughters

believe me

My dear Lord

Yr obliged & affect.

Anne Tyndale

My usual address is, you know, Holton Rock[?] Wheatley [Bron.] but for the next few weeks I shall probably be moving about and Lord Ripon will kindly forward my letters.

I must tell you that the Album is copied by a little nephew of mine only eleven years old who is going out with all his family to the [Kilgarry] Mountains East Indies, & fancies he shall become a Settler there.
