TranscriptTo Mr W.G. Smith
Liverpool 19 May 1849

Dear William,
I have got all
your people off to Quebec
yesterday. With exception of
H. Grimes family Whose friend
here would not allow them to
proceed there. This is the Same
person (Named Kieran) who wrote
Mr Morant about 3 girls some
time since. Nothing will do
Grimes but go to Boston where
children are charged almost the same
as adults. and
he has 4 children such Dogged
Mules deserve little attention &
yet cannot get along without
considerable trouble in pushing them.
The Clothing afair [affair?] has
been my most troublesome
fatiguing part of this affair
time being so short & so much
to be got done. I hope most
sincerely such another Ragged pack
may never appear here again
The Shipping & probms [problems?] can be
managed creditably, but the
other part few would like to
set about it. Thos [Thomas?] is
preparing full particulars
of all for your inspection
This is the Queens
Birth Day a Custom House
We are all for
off to see the Review
& thence on the Railway
with all the Youngsters
C Jones included to have
a Scamper at Aintry [Aintree?]
Race Course-So much
for Life in England
excuse Haste &c
