which I give you please
deposit it in the hands
of Mr.[---?] Glyn & Co. Bankers

any other information of any
identity then you can attain

Coxe & Bompas, of
19 Coleman Street, City, to whom
I had the honour of presenting
a letter of Introduction
from the Ex.Attorney General
for Lower Canada, the Honourable Lewis
J.Drummond, in August
I remain, Sir
Your very obedient
James Moty.
