My dear Willie
You will find
enclosed first for £1000
with a statement of the cost
of it above
I have a letter today
from Sam giving me
all the latest news of you
all. He was about starting
to meet Mary and I do
hope he found her well
and in good spirits. We
should hear by this weeks
Cunard Steamer from
her. I think that
she fancied herself worse
than she really is, no doubt
being, the invalid of the
family and being treated
as such aided the fancy
and I believe the Doctors
think that change of
scene will do her as much
good as your bracing
fresh air. Of course she
has a touch of malaria
and it is not all fancy
with her -
The net gain in Feby [February?]
of the Zinc Co was $1695.
The extraordinary expenses
were legal. $1661 + Taxes
$500. They sell their
iron + oxide freely but
the latter at only 3cts [cents?]_
There is I am glad to
say a disposition on the
part of Taylor to make
a compromise. So far
there is nothing definite
but I believe a settlement

is near at hand and
that I will have some
news for you soon.
In our business
prices are extremely low
We are selling but have
to meet ruinous rates to
keep goods moving. Cotton
is up and cotton goods
have already stiffened up
and stocks are not large
and I believe that we
will see better prices for
linens if the stocks at
home are not too large
Money is sharp 7%
and stocks + bonds of
Railways are high. Coal
stocks do not show an
improvement, the auction
sale of coal last week being
lower than ever.
We are all quite well
which I trust is the case
with all of you. With much
love to you all believe me
Your afft [affectionate?] cousin
Roland Redmond
Wm. [William?] Young Esq.
