The legacy to Mrs Grace M'Whinney [McWhinney?] is lapsed
by her death. This remittance would have been made
sooner, but the will reads "I desire my special legacies

sacrificing my property" &c To make this payment I have
sold Geo. RR [Georgia Railraod?] Stock, which [---?] at
par, and was appraised at 90, at 76 over 15 % loss.
Very truly Yours
You can report again the balance in your hands at Mr
Campbells death, and say whether I shall draw on you for
the amount, or what disposition shall be made of it.
Mrs Bean, who was formerly Miss Harriet C.Smith desires
her regards and grateful remembrance to Mrs Allen and
She still wears and greatly prizes a small gold locket
presented to her by Mrs Allen many years since.
