Liverpool 13 March 1847
We have at length got
a favourable change of Wind which is
now bringing up a number of large ships
& therefore expect in a day or two to have
our suspense set aside respecting vessels
for Quebec. However no doubt exists but
2 or 3 will be ready to receive Passengers
by the appointed time first week in
April, but terms are & will be high.
Numbers have engaged Passages for Quebec
here already at £3-5-0. So anxious are
parties to secure an early chance of getting
off - Could I have even a rough List
of your expected Emigrants for that Quarter
it would in some degree enable me to shape
so as to secure sufficient accommodation.
There is reason to expect markets
will be easier & therefore I will not do
any thing in Flour for you till you let
me know how you stand in that way,
a little delay if you can admit of it may
cause a saving of a few Pounds.
10 sacks of your seed were shipped
by Thursdays Boat together with Peas &
Rice for Mr. [Ludden?]
Most truly yours
Thos [Thomas?] Elliott
Mr W. G. Smith
