Joshua E. Peel & Son
English St., Armagh

Gentlemen :
Your letter of 21st
of July was not answered as promptly
as it should have been, but I
answered it as fully as I could
giving all the information in
my power to do.
I suppose you received it within
a few days after writing me
your letter of Octr 3rd.
I was absent from the City some
considerable time during the
summer or your letter would have
benn answered more promptly
I failed to keep a copy of
what I had written you but
the substance is as follows :
My mother's maiden name was
Margaret Armstrong; she married
James Gibson, my father
Archibald Stevenson's mother maiden
name was Elizabeth Armstrong they
were sisters, and daughters of
John Armstrong of [Crunnaught?]
County Armagh.
There was an illegitimate child
born to Archibald's sister,
she went by the name of
McClain [McClean?] and subsequently
became Mrs Brown.
I supposed she was dead
as I had been so informed
but by whom I cannot say.
I never knew of anyone
in the family by the
name of Loughead.
I sincerely hope you have
received before this, my
former letter, giving all
the information within my
power to do, and that
it was in time to answer
all the legal purposes
and requirements in the
case. With kindest wishes
I am
Very truly yours
Mrs Mary Martin
