Dr John [1]

 

            I have called at Mr Glenny’s [2] who is Attey for Mr. Seawright [3] , he has not come ot town yet as soon as I see him I will consult & know whether you must come up or not, if I can prevent your coming, I will as I intend to be down at the Armagh Assizes with the Record agst Hanratty [4] for w:ch I have everything prepared. I am of Opinion you wont lose any part of that Money however you shd have no dealings with Hanratty for you must plainly see he wd cheat you if he could therefore if you have any dealings with such a Man if he wrongs you no person shd pity you. My love to all friends
