Windsor – Seat of the Muses

William and Lucy Haliburton, Windsor
to their daughters charlotte & Lucy & son-in-law in Tobago

Windsor, 29 July 1790
(Thomas was born 1796)

…Here with us, our Noble Windsor looks forward with Expectation…Fatning sheaves & fruitful Seasons promise to fill the Horn of Plenty till it can hold no more…Windsor hopes to be the seat of the muses. Academies & Colleges shall distinguish this from all Acadien villages …we are already dignified with a stately new church that will contain 500 Hearers and of Tiltons and Clarkes our church shall never be wanting.
