My Dear Sir
I am this day
favoured with yours of the 23 ulto [ultimo?], the family
part of which has given Mrs Campbell and myself great
pleasure Receive our congratulations - I had this pleasure
on the 11th inst. to which I refer. Have this day received
from Mr Cumming his own Exchange in the remittances therein
mentioned, and I now enclose you herein the second of the
set. Geo. R. Cumming Savannah 13 July 1853 in your favour
upon Brown Shipley & Co. of Liverpool payable in London
at 60 [Dft?] for Three hundred & thirty nine Pounds eleven
& ninepence Sterling œ339.11.9. at 9 1/8 pct [percent?]
prem [premium?] equal to $1.647.00 in which your interest
is $585.00
James Campbell's " $630.00
Do. Trustee " $432.00 $1647.00. I note what
you say about [omitted?] [commissions?]. Since entering
up the invoice of Cotton purchased & shipped by J [Adger?]
& Co. in December 1851, which they did for a [commission?]
of [I.P. & Brokers?] and observing that our friend Mr
Cumming shipped cotton and invested in [Eqi?] without any
charge; I have intentionally omitted the [commissions?]
which you allude to. Mr Cumming in the above letter
furnishes me with the items of his charges on the 73 Bales
Cotton, which changes the amount increasing it $ 2 19/100
and making the Invoice $3.338.87. I hope it will do well,
but observing the flucatuations of the Liverpool market
think it a mere chance.
very truly yours
R. Campbell.
N.B. I write your Uncle James Campbell by this mail with
[Exge?] [Exchange?] from the [Exrs?] [Executors?] for
œ185.9.8 for Mr [Beattie?] and Mr Bryson.
