I duly received thy letter & may mention in reply that I have two letters from John Greeves & S. Douglas handing me a power of atty to receive the money alluded to & also desiring me to pay Anne £50 on receipt of it. This power of attorney, I am sorry to say, is done so incorrectly & without proper signatures that it is of no use whatever; & in consequence I shall write Jno Greeves and return it by the first vessel that leaves this port for Ireland. I regret this very much and am surprised that it should happen so. I forwarded the [thy] letter [to] Carlow the day after my arrival. I am sorry co hear that Thomas Greeves has been very poorly & feel somewhat afraid of the consequences. We are all well here.
Thou wilt remember us affectionately to Anne, J. Wright & wife, & believe me
thy truly affectionate friend
P.S. Tell Anne I shall nor forget my promise to write to her when I have a little more to say.
