Am obliged to you for your help and that of your friends; have explained matters to Andre Nault; he can talk the matter over.
My Dear Mr Bannatyne, I have received yours of the day before yesterday. I am very much obliged to you. Your Kind help and the help of other good friends I appreciate are so valuable. I send you the present by André Neault whom you know well, to whom I have explained the matter. I wished I could go myself over to your office. Yours truly and gratefully Louis Riel
