W. J. C. Allen Esq

I have just recd [received?] a
letter from Mr Smedley in London through his agt
[agent?] in Charleston stating that the papers we
had sent him in reference to the land matter did
not cover the whole ground and he is preparing
papers for us to sign before he can make a deposit
which he states will be forwarded by first steamer,
so far so good, but possibly he may be too exacting
to suit our views I have suggested that his agt
[agent?] here deposit $500 to defray expense of
drawing deed which on being completed I would forwd
[forward?] to the "Ulster Bank" to be surrendered
on paying the whole purchase money less the five
hundred dolls [dollars?] but don't know how this
will meet his views At any rate I am determined
that we shall hold our lands until there is a good
prospect of getting paid If the matter is arranged
to our satisfaction you shall hear from me
Yours most sincerely
Thos [Thomas?] W. Coskery.
