Wm. Jno. [William John?] C. Allen Esq.
Ulster Bank, Belfast

My Dear Sir
I had the pleasure
on the 18th ult acknowledging your favour of 23rd February.
I have now to advise you of having this day forwarded to
J. & J. Stewart & Co. Bankers New York City, a Bank Check for
Six Hundred Dollars to be placed to your credit at the
current rate of Exchange, to keep up my account with you
for disbursements to Miss Carroll and the Misses McWhinneys.
On looking over your late letters I find that I failed
to respond to an enquiry respecting an old friend your
school-fellow the Rev. Dr. Thomas Smyth, and am happy to
be enabled to say that he was very recently in the land of
the living. I have not since early in the war, had any
direct communication with him, but have understood that
he is still able to preach a good sermon. Some of his
children I think are expected to sail in the same vessel
with our valued friend Mr Bones in next month for Liverpool.
Please remember us to your cousin Mr. Wm. [William?] Campbell
and present Mrs Campbell's affectionate regards to your wife
and believe me Dear Sir ever Truly yours
R. [Robert?] Campbell.
