Dear Cousin Willie
We had a good
run home, and meeting several
friends on board the time passed
quite pleasantly, but I
was right glad to get home
and find all the family
safe & well. Gould is at
Newport so I have not had
a chance of consulting with
him regarding the arrangement
you suggested but I learn
on good authority that it
cannot be done -
I examined the securities
I hold yesterday and found
in a package endorsed "Southern
Securities" the 18 shrs [shares?] So Ca R.R.
[South CarolinaRail Road?]
the 105 of Charlotte Augusta &
Columbia R.R. [Rail Road?] and $700 bonds
town of Columbia and also
25 shrs [shares?] Bk [Bank?] of Georgetown S.C.
[South Carolina?] $100
each 112 shrs [shares?] S. [South?] Carolina Insurance
Co [Company?] value not given & 40 shrs [shares?]
$25 each of the Commercial
Insce Co [Insurance Company?] Charleston These
last probably have no value
The Missouri bonds are right
as I saw Mr Duer and found
that he had collected the
last coupon of the one bond
of the St Louis & Iron Mountain
R.R. [Rail Road?] last Jany, [January?] so that it was
off his list. The bond is payable
this year and I have it in
the tin box. This I believe
makes his last agree with yours.
Geraldyn did not forward you [your?]
Cousin Rowlands a/c [account?] current as
I forgot to tell him to before I
left. I now conclude it. on
June 12th then were $26.105.59
at the credit and I collected
$819 of coupins since
The Financial & Com.l [Commercial?] Chronicle
should go today to you
at Fenaghy
Geraldyn goes out in the
Britannic today and I trust
that the trip will do him good
He is much run down and
the sea voyage & your cool climate
I hope will be just the
thing for him. He is fond of
fishing & shooting and having
the boys home at Galgorm
is a fortunate thing for
The weather is extremely hot &
anything but a pleasant change
to me.
With much love to Cousin Jane
and all of you & trusting that
you are continuing to improve
believe me
Your afft [affectionate?] cousin
