[3]Old Mr. Duff has left Para and is now retired in Inverness. Mr. Ross of the Bank is now on leave in Edinburgh. Mr. Cole is still in Para.Well, enough about ourselves! I am so gald to hear you have got safely back. What a fund of glorious information you must have this time! If I had you on a steamer for a few days, I would extract it in all its fullness. How fondly I look back to those three days, going down river, when I had you all to myself and heard all about the "wooden clock" and your nocturnal rising in order to escape your father's sternness, filled all the time with a series of smaller anxieties, lest the paternal wrath should descend upon your handiwork05242
