Dear Thomas
By J. Irwin I wrote
you who left this last Note[?] for
Portadown I wrote twice that time
and sent it by hand to N. York
I expected to have heard from you
concerning the amt [amount?] of the last dividend
expecting it to be paid before this
if you rec'd my letter by Irwin
it told you to pay the Balance
in your hand of Mrs to his authorized
agent, as the purchase of the
ground of the houses was to be
paid out of the first dividend
and that before the payment of
the lagatcy [legacy?] I would have wrote you
ere this but still expecting to hear
from you, I send this by the
The Hughs a bark [barque?] that sails
from this in a few days for Belfast
if you have rec'd the needful you
will let me hear from you on
[---?] by way of N.Y. [New York?] [-----?]
we have had a lazy cold winter,
says that the glass stood 35 below
Zero now as much the reverse
say 100 above Zero in the shade
we have had a late Spring
but we will have as early
a crop as the [they?] have at home
all Kinds of vegetables in great
plenty at present and a great
crop in expectation, my Lord
[Gosfead?] our Governor is in this town
at present he is not liked by
the Brittish [British?] population, as he has
formed the french Las [?] his arsenal
and a petition is going forward to
his Majesty to have him rewarded
you will please let Rose Mc Donald
know that we are all well
and prior to your writing, if
she has any thing to say you
can in your letter let her
say where, her Son Patrick
is or if she has heard from
him expecting to soon hear from
you with best regards to
Mrs Grieves [Greeves?] I remain yours
My Sincerely
Jas [James?] Heather
