TranscriptTo Mr W.G. Smith

Liverpool 25 March 1847

Mr Smith
With great difficulty
I have been enabled to secure a suitable
large ship for Quebec to sail 6th April
but terms are beyond what we could
have wished £3 - per adult. Children
half price, parties paying their own
steamboat fare to Liverpool-
Every exertion has been used
to persuade ship owners to let us have
such as would suit sooner, Nothing
but high terms would bring them to
a close which leaves agents for all
their trouble and attention a mere trifle
I have secured accommodation for a large
lot & shall therefore feel obliged by your
letting me know per return, if by any
means possible, near how many of your
people may come for her. The ship will
be ready to receive them on board on their
arriving here and no delay will be
permitted after the appointed time - as
I have given a guarantee tis important
to know immediately what number to
calculate on -
There are two other small
vessels taking a few each. a day or two
sooner but not under £3-10-0 I did
not therefore name them to you knowing
this was quite over your expectation -
Relying on your immediate reply
I am, very truly yours
Thos [Thomas?] Elliott
