TranscriptDear Joseph
I have re'd [received?] your [favour?] of 7th Inst and
[---?] [contestants?] owing to a variety of circumstances
I have been [-------?] [something?] [---?] [good?] for
the fall as I intended [one?] is I have not
I have not received any thing from Havanah as yet
only [import?] of [latex?] and did not like
to [-------?] the stock out untill [until?] I had
got some funds, especialy [especially?] as the Havanah
Shipment was [heavy?], and I may say
that I had hoped to have heard from you
in that respect long since [then?] but I
doubt not you have [----?] [--?] but under
all Sircumstances [circumstances?], a quicker [loan?] of the [money?]
would [suit?] small [packet?] much better.
I am preparing goods for the Spring
Trade and will try and have them in time
I will of course send you whatever you can
as best and quickest but you may
I saw some goods sold by auction here
some time [since?] that were totally [rotten?]
and they brought their original [balance?] but
of course this was by mere chance [----?] I much
not multiply [----?] about them as you
will by this time have deceided what is best
and being on the spot will know best what
to do. I think you had better realize if you
can get any thing worth while for them
[Clothes ?] or [tailors?] might buy them for [linings?]
Having wrote you [so?] lately on the subject
of further shipments I need not now [say?]
any thing only prices are advancing here
demand very [good?] just now, I am [--?]
[----?] some things for Spring and will
[write?] you in time, I do assure you I
could have dispensed with any loss on these
goods at present as I have had to pay the [piper?]
[---?] wheir [where?] [but?] [me?] hear about
[them?] [soon?] as I am just now hurrying
out to help to Barry James Robinson
I will not say more only that Wm
is on a fair way to the altar of
Hymen and I dare say that by this
day month Elizabeth will be Mrs Harry
Robb of course I mean to say that these
wonders are happening in the Montgomery
Family Doctor Bamber is still alive but
that is all My Family are well
much better
A J [Bing?]
Yours Respectfully
Rbt Moore
