TranscriptPortadown 16 Nov.1853.

Dear Joseph,
I am in possesion of contents
of your favor to Robert Moore and as you
think it best to let the [sheetings?] lie over
until spring I am content so to do and to
give you absolute power to sell when you find
opportunity but I must confess to you that
I think it strange these goods should be
doing so well in the hands of other parties.

The three cases I have in hand at home I
think I will ship to Australia and then
goodbye to any more shipments as my new
a/c to any place. Business here is at present
owing to the [Eastern?] Question and other matters
very dull and I fear we are going to have one of
those monetary crisis so disastrous in the
annals of Mercantile life. I will make out
for you someday soon a statement of your
[Tandragee?] property. Meantime I wish you
and Robert would come to some agreement
about it- In haste. Your affectionate [Cousin?]
Mr Jos. [Joseph?] M. Seawright William Montgomery
