Dear Friend
I send thes [these?] few lines to let you know
that I wrote to William Heather about the
mony [money?] and he told me that there was 100 and 9
pounds in the saving bank for me as he is one of
the executors to his fathers will and he
says that was coming to me he says James
Heather has got his share of the mony [money?] and
has nothing to do with that I am shur [sure?] it is
in A honest freinds [friends?] hand that there is no
danger of it and I [If?] you pleas [please?] to send the
remainder of it to me I dont wish to put you
to cost or trouble about it I will wait on your
answer to comes [come?] to me I have Mr Harringtons
affidavit for four Hundred I hav [have?] it put into A
lawers [lawyers?] hands and I wish to let you know
that John Heathers child is living and
well and is at scool [school?] every day she is 13 years
of age If she had any thing coming to
her the uncle James would not be so
anxious about her I suppos [suppose?] he would be glad
[to?] hear of her serving the strangers like his
own which his children had to runaway
