J. [John?] Stanley Esqre 19th March 1849

Having taken out
letters of Administion [Administration?] in the
prerogative court of Armagh to the
property of my brother, the
late Wm [William?] Anderson of Ballymaguire,
bearing date the 2nd
day of November 1847, for which
I then paid you, and in which
transaction you acted very
friendly and kindly to us,
but I was much surprised a
few days ago, on receiving
a printed letter, a circular
from the stamp office in
Dublin, calling on me
to pay a further duty, which
I do not fully comprehend.
I wish to avoid all litigation
and to keep free of the meshes
of the law. I thought that
when I paid you for your
trouble, I had finally settled
for the whole affair, without
being again called on for
any more. you are scarcely
aware of how difficult money
is to be procured in this country
and therefore hope you will
keep me safe from any
more trouble or expence [expense?]
I request that you
will have the kindness to
write me a few lines directing
me what I am to do.
Anxiously waiting your
answer I remain Sir
your much obliged
and grateful Servt [Servant?]
Joseph Anderson.

John Stanley Esqre
[Sold?] Armagh
