    TORONTO, June 2d, 1857.

To MR. WM. STILL—­Dear Sir:—­I received yours dated May 6th, and was extremely happy to hear from you.  You may be surprised that I have not answered you before this, but it was on account of not knowing anything concerning the letter being in the post-office until I was told so by a friend.  The box, of which I had been inquiring, I have received, and am infinitely obliged to you for sending it.  Mr. and Mrs. Renson are living in Hamilton, C.W.  They send their best love to you and your family.  I am at present residing in Toronto, C.W.  Mr. Anthony Loney has gone on to Boston, and is desirous of my coming on to him; and as I have many acquaintances there, I should like to know from you whether it would be advisable or not.  Give, if you please, my best love to your family and accept the same for yourself, and also to Mr. James Ormsted and family.  Tell James Ormsted I would be glad if he would send me a pair of thick, heavy boots, for it rains and hails as often out here in the summer, as it does there in the winter.  Tell him to send No. 9, and anything he thinks will do me good in this cold country.  Please to give to Mr. James Ormsted to give to Mr. Robert Seldon, and tell him to give it to my father.  Mr. and Mrs. Truehart send their love to you and your family.  If the gentleman, Mr. R.S., is not running on the boat now, you can give directions to Ludwill Cobb, in care of Mr. R. Seldon, Richmond, Va.  Tell Mr. Ormsted not to forget my boots and send them by express.  No more at present, but remain yours very truly,

    Please write soon.
