... Will bring a responsible government; you are right about us; nothing violent can last because every man is under the intelligent care of might from above; know you have done your best; ill feeling will drop; result of your wise action last year will become apparent; hope Post Office will not be taken from you; petty court and police court are trouble for you but great source of arrangement for others; respects to Mr. & Mrs. Begg, Mrs. Bannatyne, Mr. McDermot; I am very grateful to the flag which protects me and not too unhappy in my misfortune.
will bring in Red River a responsible government. Such a young country having gained and possessing such a complete franchise! It is beautiful. I am charmed of my country. As regard to us, you are right. Better days will come. Because nothing violent can last; because every man is under the intelligent cares of the Might from above. You say that you have done your best for all. I know it is so. Ill feeling will drop yet to a certain measure; while the result of your wise action amongst the people during last year will remain and become apparent. I hope the Post office will not be taken from you. Petty court and Police court are certainly a source of trouble for you; but they are a great source of arrangement for others. I suppose thanks are not very plainty. At least you have the pleasure of doing good. My respects to Mr Begg and Mrs Begg. My best wishes to you for much prosperity and success. My respects to Mrs Bannatyne and Mr McDermott. Let me thank you specially for the good things contained in your letter. I must tell you here that I am very gratefull to the flag which protects me, not too unhappy in my misfortune. Do beleive me yours respectfully Louis Riel Excuse my English language
