Andrew W Smyth Esq M.D.
re. [Mr Pouley?] New Orleans.
Dear Doctor Smyth
I beg to acknowledge yours of
[yesterday?] & note all you say.
I am glad to hear that Mrs & Miss Smyth had
such a good passage & arrived at their
ultimate destination safe & sound.
I note all you say about [Mr Pouley?] &
his little scheme of company promotion.
Evidently a very ingenious device to sell
& transfer your property from himself as
your attorney to himself in his character
of "Company [promoter?]"-A sort of-financial
"Doctor Jekyll & Mr Hyde" business.
It would have been very nice for him
if he could have worked the dodge successfully
& [shall?] have left you here at [home?]
under the impression that he was your best
Evidently Mrs Smyth has all her work cut
out for her, if she wants to be successful in
upsetting Mr [Pouley's?] applecart. But with
her own ability & the assistance of her friend's
out there & the Deed of [Revoealum?]
of [Pouley's?] Power which she had with her
she should be able to manage it.
Any help I can give will be entirely &
enthusiastically at your disposal-I shall
be glad to see you when you call.
Very Purposefully Yours
