TranscriptColeraine, July 27th 1770

I am duly favd [favoured?] with thine of the 23rd inst and
note the contents, I have been inquiring at the oners [owners?]
of the Rainbow to know when she will saile [sail?] and
they say she will saile [sail?] the 10th or 12th of next
month at furthest so that if thou intends sending any
with her thou has time a nough [enough?] to send it down
and I shall take care to make the first Case man I
know going to Belfast to call on Henry Redy. I have also
been inquiring about the Rose, and from the Best Detls
[Details?] I can have she will not sail before the 10th
of next month but if thou should be certon [certain?] I
have wrote James Harvey one of the owners to write thee
when she will be ready to saile [sail?] so that if she
does not saile [sail?] before the 10th thou will have
time a nough [enough?] to send what You have ready down
- And I shall also send the three packs that is at Belfast
if they come in time as I think it will be better to send
them in her than in the Rainbow as she gose [goes?] to
Philadelphia however thou has time a nough [enough?]
to advise which way thou would have yours sent when thou
knows when the Rose will saile [sail?] If thou gets this
in time so as to write me by 7th days post by Newry.
Send mee [me?] bills for 130 that is 20/50 and a 30. As
I shall want cash for Ballymoney market next 5th day and
if thou should miss the post send a man down to [Gervian?]
Johnston's on 2nd day next when I shall be [at day?]. And
I shall have the Invoice of the last Hundred pieces up
with mee [me?] and send thee it by him we are all well
and Am with most
Sincere Respects thy Affectionate Bro [Brother?]
William Gregg
My Mother in law would be glad thou
would send down her maid [Th S. Butler?]
for Betty to go to Lurgan with, or some other
safe hand, if thou sends her it will save sending
the man to [Gervian Johnston?]
