Charlevoix, Mich., [Michigan?] 8/11/'99. 189
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 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
