W. J. C. Allen Esq
Ulster Bank

My Very Dear Sir
On the 26th inst Messrs
J & J Stuart & Co New York City forwarded to you for
my acct [account?] their Exchange No 17011 on the
Ulster Banking Co. in your favour for One Hundred &
fifty Pounds sterling payable on demand.
I wish Fifty pounds of this to go for the benefit of
Mrs Grace M'Whinney [McWhinney?] œ50-00-00 to be paid
to her husband.
To Mrs Margaret M'Whinney [McWhinney?] for herself
œ20-00-00 Twenty pounds & for the board & lodging of
Miss Lucinda Carroll for one year with her to be paid
quarterly Twenty pounds œ20-00-00 and directly to Miss
Lucinda Carroll œ10-00-00
by a post-office, or some other convenient order the sum
of Two Pounds ten shllgs [Shillings?] quarterly œ2-10-00.
I have more difficulty in disposing of the remaining
fifty pounds - It appears that at the earnest instance
of Grace M'Whinney [McWhinney?] her uncle the Rev James
McKee now her near neighbour & always much interested in
her & her sister became security for her husband for œ50
pounds for which he (McKee) has been sued.
I know not whether he has had to pay this as being security
or if it has already been paid from Wr M'Whinney's land
or chattels. I would like to protect the old gentleman
as far as this fifty pounds will go.
I understood that if it had been entered in law last
October and was to be collected this month.
Our friend Mr Bones was able to attend Church yesterday
the weather being very mild, but he is very feeble.
Miss Longstreet is quite well.
I am thankful to be able to say that my sight
enables me to walk about without much difficulty.
Mr Harper Bryson & family I believe are now in their usual
Mr J. Davison & Mrs Bryson still my neighbours are quite
With kind regards to Mrs Allen
Very Truly Yours
R. [Robert?] Campbell
