Joseph Proctor write to his father and brothers from "the Bonnie North, Englands divided Isle" Proctor recounts his tour of the Highlands and his plans to go to Cottage in mid-November. Proctor discusses the activities of his agents. He plans to hire Mr. Leavy for United Kingdom work. Levy has been in England for one to two years now and is well known in U.S. Another of Proctor's agents, Mr. Olwine, is ill and cannot do his New York work. Mr. Cowell is too busy and asks the family to write Davenport. Proctor needs Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Boston arrangements too. Proctor has advised his agents to get on the Broadway side in New York. "The Bowery will be a 2d consideration and Niblos, or the Metropolitan that was, will of course be the advisable starting point."
