Memorandum to Mr. Martin Murphy Haysland,
We received your note of the 27th ult. in due course. I was really surprised at the content. I was not aware that we ever was wanting in courtesy towards any of our Irish Friends, which from the numerous testimonials received by Capt. Stocks & myself during the time we commanded the "La Zingara" and "Istria" will fully testify. The part of your brother's letter you forwarded to us was, as we are aware, duly returned. And with respect to an agent in B. Ayres we never had any authorised one there. But Mr Wilks from past favours received from me while in the trade offered his services gratuitously to collect or receive any monies. Parties would pay him on our account. I trust this explanation will satisfy you for although tired from that particular trade we should be very sorry to think that we forget Old Friends, & by addressing me to the above address shall receive any correspondence you may favour me with.
