Nano Nagle writing to Miss Fitzsimons

Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Miss [Eleanor] Fitzsimons in which she speculates about her investments in Paris and expresses her disappointment at the low interest paid. Nagle complains that Mr. Waters, banker, would not tell her anything about the East India Company. She appears fretful and vexed; fretful that the second effort at making an Ursuline foundation in Cork would fail again, and vexed that the interest paid by the East India Company had fallen to one half of its former value. Nagle asserts that it was the general opinion that few foreigners would ever again put their money in the French funds. She requests Miss Fitzsimons to present her compliments to her former mistress, communicates her affection for her correspondent, and mentions the young ladies and Miss Smith.
