Revd & Dr [Reverend & Dear?] Sir -

Your favour of the 30th
ultimo Came duly to hand Governing
Power from the Miss Boyds no favour
of Revd W [?] Hastir[?] to draw the Legacies
left them by the late Revd. W.[?] Boyd.
I now take the liberty of
addressing you to inform you that the
($1000) one thousand Dollars was paid
over to the Revd. Gentleman without discount,
we [Ex--.?] having no expenses to charge
against the young ladies. Revd W [?] Hastis[?]
at once handed the Executors check
to the Merchants Bank here instructing them
to procure for [------?]
draft on Ireland [----?]
whatever it would [-----?]
handed the Draft [-----?]
and mailed it to you last week
which I trust you will have received
before this reaches you -
I note what you say on
the bottom of your letter relative to
interest being due as no July Remittance
had been received, in reply to this
I have only to add that the late Dr.
will close not show that any monies
was put out to interest for the Miss
Boyds - and the legacies left by him
was Payable at the death of Mrs
Boyd - I know that the Dr.
always sent about twice a year
a remittance to Miss Ann & Mary &
after his death I heard Mrs Boyd
say that as long as she lived
and was able she would make
the same remittance to those
two young ladies - and poor
woman if she had lived until
July I have no doubt but
she would have done so, but
of course we as Executors have
no authority to do more than is
laid down for us in the will

we must fulfill the trust
invested in us in every particular
as near right as possible.
Will you please let me know
if the Draft reached you in safety
and much oblige - I remain
Revd and Dear Sir
Yours very faithfully
M. Dowsley
