The Captain's Personal Post

C. Bertani
My Dear Captain Freymann,

I trust this letter finds you well, and that the Halifax station is not too onerous. If there is to be a war with the Americans, you will be well situated, I hope, in the way of prizes.

I would esteem it a great favour if you would consider entering my son on the books of the Acasta, such that he may have logged ample sea-time when he should enter the service as a Midshipman. 

Please remember me to your family, and I hope they are by God's grace keeping well.

With much regard I am, my dear Sir

Your affectionate humble servt.
C. Bertani 

Captain Rob't Freymann, Esq.
HMS Acasta Halifax Staton
