My dear Willie,
I have your
note of the 25th since writing
you on the 18th ult and
of course can add little
more to the thanks already
expressed to you for your
very generous gift of the
$10,000. I give you at head
the figures of the closing of
poor Cousin Rowlands a/c
on our books. The dates
of the remittances are very
satisfactory. The gold ban [?]
clause I do not exactly
comprehend. Do you
wish me to consider the
balance as gold, and if
anything should cause the
price of gold to advance, to
be indebted to you for the
difference? I ask this
to know definitely the position
as I would rether pay
something now and secure the
gold, than to run the risk
of an advance.
The Zinc Co have received
some overtures from the other
side, looking towards a
compromise. I don't know
exactly what as the board
will not of course state.
The Glasgow Bank
failure is disgraceful enough
There is one consolation that
the guilty will be severely
punished and not get off
as easily as rescally directors
do on our side of the water.
But this is after all a small
comfort to the thousands who
have been utterly ruined by
the crash.
Mr Pillot returned to Florida
some ten days since and
I hope soon to hear from
him regarding the plantation
The tenant has not answered
my letter.
We are all quite well
and now about settled
again in the city.
With much love to
you all believe me
Your afft [affectionate?] Cousin
Roland Redmond
Wm Young Esq.
