Dear Wilson
I got your attorney's
notice some few days ago
demanding payment of the
money at once I am prepared
to pay the amount to
Robt. [Robert?] at any time but
before doing so I would
wish you to fulfil [fulfill?] your
Bargain in regard to
Borairds [sic] Tenant = right
which I purchased from
you which they claim now
and which you promised
to make all right if they
had any claim I expect
to hear from you as
soon as possible and to get matters
settled up
I think you left
this country in the right
time with stormy weather
& low prices & Home Rule
we can hardly think of
living much longer in
Ireland James Kirkpatrick
says "In south if times
does'nt improve he'll soon
go too" This has been a very
severe winter on both people
& Cattle we had a fine cow
died 3 weeks calfed & another
now nearly dead she is'nt
able to rise & numbers of
them dying through the
country we are all in
our usual health hoping
you Mrs Moore and family
are enjoying the same
blessing Essie A wishes
to be remembered to you
& Mrs Moore in the kindest
manner hoping all is well
I close for the present In
the meantime I am
your affect [affectionate?] Cousin
Robt. A. Moore
