The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 24

James Smart. Agent, Derry, to H. W. Farnall

James Smart. Agent, Derry, to H. W. Farnall.

"I cannot get replies from London. Things really appear to have gone from bad to worse in the Agent-General's office. I have applied at least half-a-dozen times for sailings for next month (can you let me have a list); also for forms; but it is of no use. Neither can I get my account (£40), for quarter ending 30th June, settled, although the vouchers with my receipt was returned three or four weeks ago. I am happy to see by papers received by last mail that there is likely to be a change. I hope it will be for the better; it cannot be for the worse. I wrote, asking for handbooks, which I sec have been published. I need not say with what result. Can you assist me in any way? I am sending out a great many, but it takes two or three weeks for replies, and the applicants lose all patience. I am under many obligations to you, and shall feel still further obliged for any papers or information you may afford me."
