Andrew and Sarah Caldwell of New Carlisle, Bonaventure Co., Quebec wrote this letter to Sarah's uncle, Adin Beebe, in Niagara--near St. Catharines--Ontario with the primary purpose of determining the living and economic conditions in the Niagara area, in anticipation of a possible move there because of the "Rachad State of the Districk of the Gaspe." [There is an indication on the original transcription that the letter was dictated to Amasa Beebe by Andrew and Sarah.]

In addition to describing conditions in the New Carlisle area, there is much new to be gleaned about Andrew and Sarah's family, as well as a few related families, including the families of Joshua Beebe/Barbara Hall, and Samuel Chatterton/Charlotte Beebe. The following individuals are also mentioned: Amasa Beebe, Asa Beebe, Secord Beebe, and Mary Secord Pearson. This letter has historical and genealogical significance. It gives us a glimpse into the lands and familes of the area in a time-period in which few records survive.
