Mr. McGinity

My dear sir
I have the pleasure to acknowledge the receipt of your
welcome letter. I do assure you it gives me infinite pleasure to receive one from you. I promise you I will do everything that lies in my power for to send your Sister-in-Law off as cheap & [and?] as comfortable as I possibly can when she comes here. Write to me before she leaves home and inform me of the day she leaves home and when she'll [she will?] be here & [and?] it will enable me to send a person to look out for her, by doing so it will keep her from being imposed upon by Loafers & [and?] when she arrives tell her to inquire for John Devine. He is a brother-in-law of mine. Him or his boy will be at the Steam. As for passage, the rates are changeable. The amount of money your Sister-in-Law will have to pay for herself and her 3 children about £12. to £13.0.0 The Ship finding 7lbs. [pounds?] of Bread Stuff & [and?] 1lb. [pound?] of pork per week for each adult. There is Liner Packets for New York on the 11th, 16th, 21st, & [and?] 26th inst. [instant?] They are certainly all good ships and are about 10% [percent?] higher than other ships and some of those ships out of the line are as good as those in the line however I'll [I will?] put her in a good ship at the lowest price current. There is ships for New York besides the liners every few days, say 9th, 13th, 18th, 22d & [and?] 28th. She will meet with no disappointment in getting a ship at anytime for New York. Caution your Sister-in-Law not to make any arrangements in Dundalk until she comes to L'pool [Liverpool?]
where it will be got for the lowest rate. I enclose you a few of my
brother-in-laws Cards. There is no one can do for passengers than we can
do, or are in a better position.
I am yours
C. Graham
