    ST. CATHARINES, C. W., May 6th, 1858.

    My DEAR FRIEND:-WM. STILL:-Mr. Orlando J. Hunt, who has just arrived here from Richmond, Va., desires me to address to you a line in his behalf. Mr. Hunt is expecting his clothing to come from Richmond to your care, and if you have received them, he desires you to forward them immediately to St. Catharines, in my care, in the safest and most expeditious way in your power. Mr. Hunt is much pleased with this land of freedom, and I hope he may do well for himself and much good to others. He preached here in the Baptist church, last evening.

    He sends his kind regards and sincere thanks to you and your family, and such friends as have favored him on his way. Very respectfully yours,
