No 8 Wellington Place Augusta 26th December 1840
Belfast, Ireland

Dear Sir,
At the request of our friend
Mr Robert [Walter?] of this place, who has the
management of the property of the late
Andrew Mitchell and is in correspondence respecting
it with Mr. George Mitchell of [Stindroy?] Head
Ireland, I write this letter as an introduction of
the latter to you, as one who can give Mr G.M.
[George Mitchell?] satisfactory information
respecting the present [disrupted?] state of Stocks
and Real Property in this city arising from a variety
of causes which we generally hope here will
not affect us long, such as last [years?] epidemic,
the [succeeding?] inundation, and the failure of the
last Cotton crop; which in this state of S. Carolina
will not be half what it was the previous
season - There are other causes arising out of the
situation of our money affairs tending to increase
present embarassments, but whither they will soon
be remedied it is hard to say. From sales which have
recently taken place I concur fully in the opinion
entertained by Mr Walter that the present would be an
unfavourable period for puting [putting?] either
real property or stocks into market here
I shall be much obliged by your imparting to Mr.
Mitchell such information as he may desire and as
[general?] knowledge of our City may enable you to
Very respectfully & truly yours
A. Campbell
