Dear Mrs Moore
I was not aware until
Mattie came here a few days
ago that you wished me to
write to you concerning this
[Lagg?] business with which you
have had so much troubles.
Mattie told me that she had written
to you objecting to O'Doherty and my
opinion of him is as bad as hers but
since she came here she and
William and I have talked the
matter over and have decided to
agree to John's proposal to have you
And Mr O'Doherty act in this case
We have such unlimited confidence
in your sound judement and
justices that we think Mr O'Doherty
cannot go very far astray with you
on the other side. You know all
the circumstances of the case and
we leave it to your own judgement
to do what is right for us, as we have
told John we want nothing but
justice. It does seem too bad
that you have had so much
trouble with our affairs.
Hoping this will find
you all well with kindest
regards to all your circles
Your very sincere friend
M.J. Stevens

P.S. Matties bids me say she would
write but William said he would
write himself.
