Since writing you last pacqt [pacquet?] & a
few lines the 18th by way of Newry the 2 Inst
[instant?] I recd [received?] yours of the 30 Dec
& 26 Jany the Novr [November?] mail must of had a
long passage. I make no doubt but you do whats rights
with the Tenants & am Sorry any indisposition shoud
[should?] prevent your taking the amusement you mention
the Savoy you mention must have been an
extravegant [extravagant?] one. The Players begin here on
Monday next. The New Congress are now met
& has Chosen G [George?] Washington their president
I think Mr Pitt has great Names & if what
appears in the Papers is true, the Prince
seems badly advised, I shall apply to the Aunt
of Mary Kers [Kerr?] Children but fear she is poor
The only uneasiness I have at present is the
intention I meet with from an apprehenson
[apprehension?] you & Mr Isaac may imagine I am not
making every exertion to get away that is in
my power, which you'l be so good to Acquaint
him, as he may think me unwise I expect

& the Weather in [it?] is very blustery on this Coast
The Sheeting & Gloves hope you have sent, [&?]
mentioned to my friends what you write.
The Hams are ready for the first opp.y [opportunity?] & is
very fine ones. Mr Whaley must be a
Whimsical Charector [character?], he has a very proper
Companion, his Mother was a Sensible fine
Woman. She Married one Mr Richardson of
Colerain [Coleraine?]. I am glad to hear what you mention
of Lord Dungannon, its the proper place
to show his Hospitality. Harry Joy was industrious
& a fortunate Man, Frank Hamilton must have
been very old & was long a resident in the Island
of Jamaica. Doctor Charltons Lady has
requested me to send to you for Forty Yards of
the very same Colour & priced [Facinet?] as the
