The beginning:
Letter to the British Colonist Newspaper, January 8th, 1859
Research Report
This is a letter to the newspaper written on January 8th, 1859. It was published on the front page of The British Colonist, under the heading “Correspondence of the British Colonist, Fort Hope, B.C. Jan. 8, 1859.” The letter is from COQUEHALLA, which is probably not a real name. His credentials are unknown as he does not state any.
It is clear that Coquehalla has a strong agenda. He is pushing a political viewpoint. The letter was written to respond to some political problems, in particular things the government is doing, and not doing. This is because the letter writer tells the Editor that he thinks this new newspaper (The British Colonist) will bring complaints...
The end:
..... group of concerned citizens, then he would be speaking for many people, not just for himself. This would make his argument stronger and more persuasive.
All in all, the writer uses language well to make his points. His strong metaphors and language tend to persuade the readers. Also his personal experience and sensible ideas will persuade the readers. On the other hand, his language is so strong that he sounds a bit too emotional. Also, he has no evidence and he speaks only for himself. Therefore, although the reader may be persuaded due to the use of language, there are still some serious problems with the letter.
