Lpool [Liverpool?] 22nd May 49 [1849?]

Dear William.
I have no
doubt but Henry Grimes may
make another call on you.
He has just been to say he
intends going Home by this
nights Boat of course by the
advice of his Friend Kiernan, who
appears to have kept him from
going per Ship "City of Lincoln"
for Quebec last week-He wished
to go to Boston or any where in the
U. States, and handed me $2 in
addition to your order, but this would
be accepted for his family to Boston
I got him an offer of getting
away to New Orleans this day,
and his Friend would not permit
him to go even there-Kiernan
is I believe his Brother in law &
therefore his councilor [councillor?]-I would
not by any means stretch so
far on good nature (as instanced in
your directions to me as to enable him
to choose his Destination-especially
after loosing [losing?] part of his Findings
Beds & Bedding &c having gone off in the
Quebec Ship intended & put on board
for his Family. John Murray & family are
here waiting for some expected aid from
some relation at Dundalk. M. Mahan &
Wife have not yet got their chest
but all their orders are included in
the amt. [amount?] stated in abstract of a/c [account?]
Sent you by Tom this afternoon.
Should another such
Ragged Lot be sent off the Estate
at any time please let me know
before hand if they require clothing
so as I could have it managed
more economically. In the late
case time was short & they would
not get on board till [until?] put in
clean order, to effect which I
had to employ 4 or 5 persons
to collect cheap clothing, the
Youngsters being numerous were
the most difficult to suit with
covering. Tom will be able
to amuse you respecting some
of their moves. All Friends
here improve and all are anxious
to know if they may expect you
& the Youngsters. Yours very truly
Thos [Thomas?] Elliot
Mr W.G. Smith
