Halifax Nova Scotia 3 May 1809

To Sergeant Major Johnson’s parents.
I am exceedingly sorry in being under the very painful necessity of communicating to you the fall of your brave son on the 2nd March last at Martinique, and although with you I most sincerely lament the early fate of so good a man with you I also rejoice in the remembrance of his having nobly done his duty both in front of the enemy & in private life. No man could be more respected than Johnson, and consequently none more regarded. We naturally grieve for such a loss. The corps mourns for Johnson but why should we be sorry, ‘twas to that end the Almighty made us. Your son was called on in the prime of life; he knew not long sickness and died sensible. His worth lives on record in the books of the regiment, a consequence which soldiers aspire to and which good conduct alone can merit. About six hours before his death your son requested I would take charge of his effects and transmit the amount to you. The account is annexed and inclosed is a bill for the sum. If at any future period you should require further particulars I shall be very happy to prove the regard I had for Johnson by attending to the wishes of his parents.
