Dublin, Jany 24th 1871.

Dear Joseph,
I received your [letter?]
of thursday last, and went to Messrs.
Longfield, Davidson & Kellys Office on
friday, but found they were from
home - I again went on yesterday
evening and saw Mr. Longfield - he
Knew at once what I wanted,
and told me that Mr. Newton
(I apprehend of Coagh) is to be up
with him in Dublin on friday
first (27th Inst.) to settle the rentals
on the Estate and to arrange
what portion of the Estate will
be sold, when the sale will
be proceeded with forthwith.
He says there can no more
be sold than what will cover
the debt or mortgage - I believe
about #60.000 - he cannot
say until after friday what
portion will be sold - he thinks
Killywoolaghan will not be sold,
or Brookend, but he thinks Aughavey
Ballymaguire &c will be put up
for sale - I have arranged to
call again on Saturday when he
will be able to give me all the
particulars - this [arrangement?]
must have come all at once [torn]
Davidson was in my office [torn]
a few days ago, and told me [there?]
had been no arrangement then -
but would let me Know before any
thing [anything?] would take place. -
I think you may be prepared
for the sale, and let my friend Mr. Chambers
see this note, so that he may be
preparing also. -

I will write
on Monday next, as it will be
after post time when I get an
interview with Messrs. Longfield &
Davidson on Saturday evening
I hope this will find Cousin

[Susanna and?] family in good
health - as also Mr. & Mrs. Chambers
& family. -
We are here in our usual
good health (only colds.)
Hoping everything will
turn out to your wish and
I am Dr. [Dear?] Joseph
yrs. [yours?] very truly

Wm. [William?] J. Howard
