TranscriptPortadown 21st Sep [September?] 1854

Dear Joseph,
I duly received your last and was sorry you were not able to
carry out your intention in landing a remitance [remmitance?] as
I am badly off. I will have large payments to make on the 4th November
perhaps you will be able to accomplish your purpose by that time
and let us have the proceeds of those goods, the loss and
interest on the amt [amount?] so long is very painful to us just
now. I certainly would not have thought of sending any more of
the first transaction only that you lost by them and wished to
have something respectable that the commission would pay your
loss and I selected these as they were the only things that paid
any thing before. Wm [William?] has the same class of goods sold
in New York at 25 to 30 %.
