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