My dear Martin,
I received the enclosed note from Eliza today and the reason I send it to you is to let you see that, I suppose John is very anxious to get this girl Margaret Roche out to him, and hence Eliza tells you to give Margaret the £3 to pay her way in Liverpool and B. Ayres. So if we can get her to go all is right. Her two brothers were with me on St. Patrick's night after I had written my note to you and as I could do nothing for them I told them to go to you on yesterday. I sent them to you that you might get her to go with one of the brothers. If the family, though poor, could send one of the boys and her, all would be right. I will write to her this evening and if she goes I will let you know. Your ever obliged,
C. Reville
I don't think we can give the three Pounds to any one but herself, that is, you could not give it to one of the brothers, but you know best as John might be glad to get the two brothers.

[follows with pencil]
Since I wrote you the letter yesterday relative to the many men I find too often will be ready on the 30 inst. You would greatly obliged me to let those two remain till next ship is sailing after the 30, and either with another legaing with them. Let me know immediately if you will comply with this request.
