L.pool [Liverpool?] April 2d 1847

Dear William,
You will have received
my petition ere this to save me
from my Friends the Farney men.
If they come off tomorrow it
will be no easy matter to stand their
humbuging [humbugging?] till the 12th, as tis now quite
impossible any of them can get on board
the John Bolton - if she could carry three
times her number we could have Booked
them this few days past at high rates
Less than £3-5-0 has not been accepted
for her lately - This places "Boot on Tother
Leg" with your Gentlemens notions-
Some parties must have been
trying to deceive Mr. Kennedy when 50/-
was named. I could not secure passages
for adults were I to engage 500 at that rate
without having 1/- by the whole Lot for my
trouble. I hope you have kindly put a
stop to your parties till Tuesdays Boat
I wrote by the early Post day before
yesterday hopeing [hoping?] it would reach you in
time before the closing of the office to that
effect. Nothing but having Names
in sufficient time will secure accommodation -
without disappointment or delay,
which with a poor party is really distressing.
You have all the Invoices you
require. I expect the other thing by
tomorrow. Markets tumbled down
delightfully till yesterday during the whole
of which we had a heavy fall of Snow &
hard Frost last night - Indian corn and
Flour in consequence went up again a
Yours Dr. [Dear?] William
Most truly
Thos [Thomas?] Elliott

I have not had time to see Mr Hunt
I Understand he was to be off
again this mornings Tide
I have only returned from
St Johns Church where Mr
Faloon always delights the
Congregation on such days
as this-
