TranscriptWexford Convent

My dear Martin,
I saw Brien today and I told him of your arrangement with your brother John. He told me all was right as he thinks he will spend his whole life with him, but he hopes you will enable him to pay his way from here to Liverpool, and from Buenos Ayres to John's own place. He thinks all will be right for him to start in about ten or twelve days. I forgot to tell him about his taking out the harnesses to brother John, but if they be ready for him of course he will take them with pleasure. John Richards told me on yesterday he will have some little things to send to his son by him. I find it impossible to induce Robert Furlong to send out his son.
With kindest respects to your sister remains yours ever obliged,
C. Reville

Dear brother,
The bearer Mr. James Furlong is son to Doctor Kubert I. Furlong, Wexford, who is desirous I should give him an introduction letter to you. From all I have heard he is a quiet, well-disposed young man. He has never been to business of any sort, and of course inexperienced in how best to get along in that country. If you will give him to the best of your knowledge your counsel and advice, and do what you can for him. You will much oblige your affectionate brother,
Martin Murphy
