TranscriptTo James of Drogheda
[James?] Irwin

Bray Jan 2d 1794
Dear Sir
I got here yesterday as I have obtained 3 months leave of
Absence from Lord W Meath [Westmeath?], & propose to buy in Dublin some
Neccessaries [Necessaries?], will be much obliged to you to enclose me a
Bill payable at sight for £7 10 which will be due to me the
12th just as the Balance of the Half Years Salary. I am to
preach here on Sunday next, but previous to my leaving House,
took care to make provision for Almortia, in case you should
not be there. As I know it will please you, I must inform you
that Lord Westmeath will take out the Commission of the
Peace for me immediately, the Gambells [Gambles?] were to leave town
for Becksboro today. You will please to direct to me under
Cover to yr [your?] care of Mr Denis Mitchell, Brazen Head Inn,
Bridge Street, Dublin, from whence I expect God willing to
set off for Home on Thursday next - make the Bill only payable
to myself. I waited many days at Home, in Hopes of seeing
you, as you promised to be at Almortia after Xmas [Christmas?]
I beg my best Comfts [Comforts?] to Mrs Irwin
Yours Sincerely
Saml [Samuel?] Williams
