D. in name of James Stewart Rodney Miss from 59 to 69. The letter begins: 'I have been a Customer of the Bank for a number of years. In 1864 I returned to Scotland but came back here in 1865 to try and save some of the large amounts due me by the Planters, and to see what I could do with Several Parcels of Cotton belonging to me, and seized by the U.S. Government. So far I have met with very little success but Mr Thornton the Minister in Washington thinks of the Convention recently agreed upon by Lord Clarendon & Mr Johnson goes in Operation, I will be paid. I have no doubt of its final ratification by the Senate. They will bluster and talk big for a time, & then ratify the treaty. I am running thirteen Plantations this Season - Sticking an average between 1867.8 which was very nearly a failure, & 1868.9 which yielded a moderate average Yield, the returns for the present Season will be 700 Bales Cotton.' The letter continues with more details of the business, concluding: 'I am arranging to come to Scotland next Spring, the Duke of Richmond having promised me a lean of our old Plan so soon as the present one falls in'.
