Joshua E. Peel Esq
Armah [Armagh?] Ireland

Dear Sir
The money must be in the Court of
Chancery or in the Bank of Virginia.
My father died in parish Mullah [Mullagh?]
in County Cavan in the spring of 1847.
Lord Cavandish [Cavendish?] landlord.
My father made no will.
The money was left to my Father after
his death. Uncle William Kirk came
to America about 60 years ago & died
about 1847 or 1848. My Grand Father Jack
Kirk's youngest brother Charles Kirk
went to India in an early day.
We think it was his fortune that was
left & of which we are writing.
My Grand Father's brother Silas Kirk
came to America about 70 years ago
& it might be that it is his estate. Peter
Farley son of my mother's sister Nancy told
me he had tried to get the estate but
failed because he was not a Kirk.
My brothers John, Richard and Peter
Kirk now live in Parish of Armulla [Mullagh?]
My brother Peter's Post Office is Ryefield Co.
The United States Consel [Consul?] at Dublin
Hon. Thos [Thomas?] F. Bayard will doubtless
render you any assistance in his power.
Let me know what you will charge
us to undertake our case in the
insurance plan
Very Respectfully
Patrick Kirk
