Title

Letter from Barthelemi Tardiveau to St. John de Crevecoeur, 20 April 1789.

Description

In this letter, Tardiveau expresses his upset at having not received any letters from his friends in the post, stating he is convinced he had been forgotten. He had hoped to receive letters so he could include his farewell in the response, but that was not the case. Talks of a hot spring in the area but he hadn't gotten a chance to visit it yet. Updates Crevecoeur on a Captain Hutchins, who is in the late stages of consumption. Also included is a letter for Crevecoeur's wife, Fanny, inquiring whether she wants to continue correspondence with him or end it entirely.
