My Dear James

Recd yours of the 5th Nov 1853 and observed its contents, I went to Mr D Ross of
Dunrimond & told him I had a letter from you wherein you Stated that you wrote to him to
know would he purchase your and Sisters part of Kildough his ansr was that there would be
Some Trouble in making out the [Title] & Deeds but that he would write to you on the Subject. I would have written you sooner If it was not that I still thought he would
Say Something further concerning it Your Aunt has desired me to Say that if Mr Ross & you does not Come on Terms that Mrs Campbell Sister to the late Mr Killen will purchase on the Same [Title] that She purchased your Brother John, Richard & Davids part of Kildough – Mr George Woodhouse’s part of Kildough was Sold lately to a Mr Wright of Monaghan for ₤445.0.0 and Mrs Campbell gave him ₤20.0.0 for his & His Bargain and has it and Seems Very Anxious to get more She even Sent a young Man of the Name of Brannen to your Aunt to know when you, Sally & Jane would Sell your parts – Your Aunt thinks that you Sally & Jane should put your Heads together and make up your Minds what you would take for your Shares and write to us and we will do all in our power to make the most of it, and when you write do not say in care of Revd Mr Tarleton, but in Care of Mrs Bond Dublin Street Monaghan – Your Aunt answered Sallys letter wherein was mentioned Your Father’s death – Sally mentioned in her letter that Jane was poorly after her confiniment Aunt wishes to know if She is quite Recovered and if Sally is well and how David & His wife & Family are doing, and if there is any word from Richard and Where Where he is & how doing
My Dear James I would beg leave to make one remark and It is this Namely that when
you three make up your Minds what Sum you will take for your shares of Kildough that you will then Write to Mr Ross and give him the first offer & then if he declines purchasing the blame rests with himself. I think you’l agree with me that he is entitled to a preference – Your Aunt wishes you to tell your Brother David’s wife that Mrs Wm Bothwell is well and doing well & has a handsome place. She has a daughter that is a Credit to her and to all belonging to her – Aunt Joins me in love to you, to Sally & her husband & to Jane & her Husband and to David and his wife and I remain My Dear James yours
Most affectionately

James Beatty
