Transcript Portadown 15 Sept 1853
Dear Joseph
I have been expecting to hear from you for some time past
with regard to the sheetings shipped so long ago. I think they
should be sold by this time or at least we should have heard
something about them whether they are likely to sell or no. I
wrote you on a former occasion what some few pieces had been
sold at here and I think they should bring considerably more
with you. If you have realised on any lot I would prefer in
preference to you paying for exchange to ship me some article
that at least could realise freight and charges in Liverpool. I
have another small lot ready and would have shipped them before
this if I had heard from you. I hope soon to get from P
McConnell the documents relating to the property in Tandragee.
The above named goods are advanced very confidently here and
great enquiry from your side for them.
Your affect [affectionate?] cousin
Mr J M Searight William Montgomery
