Dear Brother,
I have been dependent [torn] on your generosity this long time by ordering [torn] articles & circumstances that I am [torn] safe to think that the amt. I send you well be sufficient to pay all I owe. John Hoare sent me the acct. by Byrne of the harness & chest. The sum total is £5-15s-6d, which you will be also pleased to pay. I enclose in this a Bank Bill for £24 for Mrs. Margaret Howlin (Ballyell), from her son James. Please hand over to Father Reville the first opportunity £5 of this I send you. He know what to do with it. All the Friends out here are well & as I start for Bs. As. on tomorrow I have the finishing of this letter there. The Rojas wool, nor that part of Uncalito wool I sent to Bs. As. is not yet sold. Market's very dull. Send you [torn]James a few papers (regardless irrespective of date) that [torn] might be interesting to Mr. Meadows [torn] them. They say much of the works going [torn] this country. December 23, 1872. [torn] Brother, I send James a Bill for £150, [torn] of which he will give to you for the purposes above mentioned. Also divide amongst the most deserving poor of the parish £5 in sums as you think fit. If Bess Murphy is still leaving don't forget her, though not of the parish. We are all well. Wool looking up. Land in great demand. I was told to day to name my terms for Uncalito. I feel slow move in selling it, at lease for some time. My love to all from your dear brother,
