New Orleans 27th of Feb [February?] 1819
I wrote to you by the ship abigal [Abigal?] for
Liverpool which I hope you have received, these few lines
is merely to let you know not to send anything to me by the
Parker and Sons Captain Henry Hodgson as there is a young man
John Bruce of Limavady son to Henry Bruce of said Town who I
have taken a Passage for in the Cabin of the Ship Edward
Downs of Belfast by order of Mr. Henry Bruce of Kentucky
Captain of the Washington Steam Boat running from that
place to New Orleans and son to Mr. Henry Bruce of Limavady
this is a fine opportunity for sending what you have to send
me with Mr. John Bruce as he can fetch it as his own and
save Expenses he can enter himself as a farmer and my Tools
Package I have as good Health as ever I had in Ireland,
though not so with every one that comes [torn] I expect
these few lines will meet you all in good Health and remain
your affect. [affectionate?]
P.S. will write by the Ship Edward Downs more particularly
how to forward anything you may have to send me and who to
direct them to and where.
