TranscriptA. D. Cruickshank

Charlevoix, Mich., [Michigan?] 8/11/'99.

Messrs Peel & Sons,
Counsellors at Law,
Armagh, Ireland.

Miss Elizabeth Mackie, who is now at this
place with friends, has conculted [consulted?] me in
relation to some business affairs of her's in your
vicinity. She informs me that you have some
information in relation to her rights in a farm in
your country, upon which her Uncle is now residing and
has been for sometime past as the tenant of her
father. She says that she gave you some papers
relating to this property, and referred me to you as
being able to give me some information as to the title
of this property. Would you be kind enough to give me
what information you have in relation to this and
other matters that may be within your knowledge
concerning this young lady's property interests there,
in order that I may be able to advise her more fully
in regard to these matters.
She expresses herself as having implicit
confidence in your firm, and her friends here and
herself seem desirous to have her affairs looked after
over there, and she will undoubtedly desire you to do
so, as she has been doing business with a lawyer at
Rosemary, and from her statements, and from some
papers I have examined, it would seem that this lawyer
is taking advantage of this young lady. Hoping to hear
from you in due time in relation to this matter, when I
will communicate with you further, thanking you for
your attention to this in advance, I remain,
Very respectfully yours,
A D Cruickshank
