Dear Joseph
Your letter is duly to hand and I
am sorry I cannot indulge my own inclination and
gratify your wish by going over to Philada [Philadelphia?] The
business for which I came here is not yet commenced
and I do not know when it will be finished -
I wish to leave by one of the Packet ships of
next week and hope to reach Ireland some time
early in July - I will wish great pleasure take charge
of any letters and parcel you my wish to forward to
my Brother or any of your friends. [Banarfh?] History
of the United States is undoubtedly the best yet published
and I do not think there will be a new edition after
the [course?] - I am almost sure John would never get
through it he is so dilalong [sic]. I rubbed him up pretty sharply
some time since about this in reply to a letter from himself
on the subject. I fear he wont take all I said quietly,
but the fault is his own for asking my opinion
In haste
Your affectionate Cousin
