Dear good friends I write you again to let you know how far our society has come since I last talked to you Our business has really come along Kingston is a big fur-trading town Weve gotten big in the business Ive started to take part in it Its sort of become a sport We all go out and shoot animals then skin them and bring them to the trading posts to get them sold and traded to England The Netherlands an other places Our society is really coming together We have a governor Pieter Stuyvesant Hes been a very good leader so far Hes leading all the Dutch settlers like myself as well as others that come along our territory Weve started getting African settlers although they arent Dutch they look to Pieter as their leader Recently weve been getting threats from the British that if Pieter Stuyvesant doesnt surrender they will take over our settlements with violent action Pieter is holding ground and saying he wont surrender even though all the towns people encourage it British Richard Nicolls tells us he has on hundred and twenty guns in four black frigates ready to be fired at the Dutch Pieter finally surrendered after hearing that threat The British now have control over our colony and not much has changed The only difference is that the fort flies the British flag were still running like normal Although there are more British people around which isnt a problem really were getting along fine Ive been working hard with the fur trade Every morning I wake up early to get out there before the rest of the men do Each day we kill about three animals each Usually deer but sometimes we get smaller animals too The pay isnt rich but its enough to get you by out here nothings too expensive My home is very humble its nice an small not fancy
