Dear Charles:

I am favoured with yours of the 10th April & Observe the Contents.
Nothing hinders me sending your own Account but I put by the account
Currant you furnished me last Season in a place where I cant find it, & in
it there are several sums that I want to know to enable me to make out
your Account. As I wrote to you to this purport before, I hope soon to
Receive it when you depend I shall Close our account.
What I have wrote you before about the articles that will Answer here
is my present oppinion. Linnens to Cost from 1s to 1s/8d per yard will
almost always answer & Irish Butter.
I am in great hopes if Mr. Greg stirs himself, our Partnership may turn
out well & be of great advantage both to him & me. 1 know it will not
be very agreeable to some of my Irish Friends, but [if] they may make tryal
of Others, they will return again.
Your & Mr. Blows Box of Linnens will be sold as soon as possible &
the sales furnished by Greg & Cunningham which is our Firm.
Dear Charles: assure yourself Nothing can give me greater pleasure then
to hear of your Success. WC
