There is a small, loose, handwritten scrap of paper inside the original Baptism Records Book (RG4/2244). The front side is a receipt for the baby's Baptism. The back contains a personal note from the parents. This is what it says.
Ann Fearen Addison, Daughter of Peter & Jane, born 11th September 1835 in the township of Pickren Upper Canada, baptized October 10th by me, Robert Corson, A Minister of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada.
Give our kind love to Mr Clayton and tell him to be so kind as to Register this in your Book Along with our other Children and it will oblige your son and daughter.
Peter & Jane Addison
Jane sends her kindest love to all her class mates, particularly Joseph Morris; and tell them she will see them all again, if not on earth, she hopes in heaven; and we desire they will not forget to Pray for us and we will not forget to Pray for them. Give our kind love to John Thompson and tell him we were obliged to him for writing the hymn for Mary Ann.
