TranscriptPortadown 31st May 1854

Dear Joseph
I have your favour a few days
since and while I may say that in one sense
it considerably alayed our fears respecting the health
of your good Cathy (we were beginning to think your
Delay in writing was caused by her death) in another
respect it greatly disappointed and vexed me
from a former note I did expect a remittance
in ten days and I never looked for money
with greater anxiety as I had just at that
time to lift a Bad Bill for [?] 330 and the
usual payments and the bank [Icrew?] as
low as it can be put down I constantly was
greatly anoyed when I opened your letter and
found it a blank May I lay to you
[?] when you get this if possible I see
by this day news that money is easier and
perhaps you can do better now Wm [William?] and I
will consider your attention in favour
Yrs [Yours?] Robt [Robert?] Moore
