Mauritius, 8th March 1860

My dear Charles,

Yours of 28th Novm/59 reached me by last mail on 15th [?] bearing postmarks, Bandera Tx 5th Decm, New York 21st Dec, British Mail “recv Southampton London Jan 2, the mail for Maurtius leaves on the 18th of every month So, I think the best way for both of us is to put our letters under cover to Gardeyne [apparently a business associate in London] as the center of the world is London.

Your letter is again a long Preface! I don’t understand your position yet, wandering from Illinois to Texas, in Search of what? to live alone without a hand to help you except by buying Niggers enormously dear $1400 for 1 man then to run away from you at New Orleans,
