TranscriptPortadown 23 Feby [February?] 1854

Dear Joseph,
I have seen your letter to Robert and you report of
the sale of 2 Boxes of the Linen but you dont specify whether
they are both his or one mine and one his but from your
concluding remark I take it they are the latter I certainly
am very tired of this consignment and as the money market is
daily growing tighter here my present intention is to know if
there is any way of clearing out the good and remitting the
proceeds without "a heurendous [horendous?] Sacrifice". If
you can realize me [my?] invoice price with duty Commission
to let him go by all means Do you see any change of their
being sold by private sale this season if so sell them but if
you dont see any chance of this being done I will let mine go
to Auction and be sold for whatever they will bring and I
wish this had been done long since. You have now power to
sell mine but they must be sold this season as I cannot
afford and they cant pay to hold over for another 12 mos
Yours Affectionately
William Montgomery
