Dear Joseph

I expected from the sound of your
last that by this time I would have had a
remitance [remittance?] from you for the cloth in
your hands I hope by this time they are all sold if
posible [possible?] but me hear from you in course
of post and send me all the money you can scrape up
I am just now hard up in consequence of a
failure or two in Belfast in which I am
considerably Interested - Alex Hunter of Dunmurry
is down the amt [amount?] of his liabilities not
stated as yet and he has caused Thos [Thomas?]
Ferguson & Sons of White Rock [Whiterock?] to
suspend payments I am a creditor with him for a
large amt [amount?] I do not as yet know what he
will pay but for the moment I will be put a little
about therefor [therefore?] your attention just now
will prove a great favour do what you can you may
depend upon it the prospects for the Linen Trade
here are not good some [kd?] [kind?] of yarns have
advanced 25% during the last two weeks and still
the demand for goods is exceedingly small and
scarcely any Sales as Bills are of little use
Your friends here are all well so far as
I know your old friend W Armstrong Lurgan
Still asks for you very kindly he has
retired from business or nearly so

Yrs [Yours?] Raspectfully [Respectfully?]
Robt [Robert?] Moore
