LETTER: Robert Jones, Gibraltar to his wife Ann Jones, Amlwch. He hopes the children and herself are in good health. He is much better. He hopes his father and mother are well. He is ready since yesterday to sail to Pomaron. The wind is contrary. Thomas Rowlands sailed from Gibraltar three days before he arrived. He has sent a bill for £85 to Thomas Jones yesterday. He has got his last clean shirt on now and if she hasn't got one or two made she had better get some now as he can't do without shirts. If she intends going to Liverpool she must get herself ready and he will stop in the bay if the weather permits. If the person she mentioned, named John wants to go to sea he should get ready to join them in Liverpool, but it would be better if she could persuade him to wait till the Spring, as the weather will be bad shortly. He will take him the same time as Mary Pritchard's sweetheart's brother. He longs to see her and the children.
SECOND PART OF LETTER: Villa Reel. He hopes to arrive at Pomaron tomorrow. If John does not want ot go to sea he asks her to sheip a boy to cook for him at about 20s. to 25s. per month. He will drop a line when he is ready to sail from Villa Reel.
