  • Notes 
    • Copy of a letter from Mr. Thomas Tannahill, in Paisley to his relations in America Dated Paisley, 19th, May, 1824 Dear Aunts: Your nephews on this side of the water are longing to hear from you. We would take it very kindly if you would correspond with us and let us know the situation of your families. Although our fathers are no more, we would not wish you to forget us their children. We will not trouble you with anything belonging to this country- but what we think will be more interesting to you, some particulars respecting our own families. I am the only one of your nephews here that recollects our uncles. I assisted one or other of them at times as a draw boy. I have Uncle John's lamp which our father kept as long as he lived, it has stood in the same place, since our uncle went away which is about fifty years ago. Our father died about two years ago aged near eighty seven years. He left two sons, two daughters with their families, with brother Robert's widow and family. Robert died about six years ago. Our uncle James died many years since. Our father and uncle James lived on the greatest friendship, they were respected by all who knew them while they lived, and were regretted when they died. I hope it was so with our uncles Robert and John. I remember they were like one another for the amiableness of their temper, and we are happy to say that our grandfathers and great-grandfathers were noted for their piety; which I hope will be said of their children for many generations. The last account we heard of you was from Mr. Samuel Purden who came over about the end of the war. He informed us of the welfare of your families. He gave us some hopes that some of your sons would pay us a visit, which we would be very glad to realize. With respect to my family I have three sons one of who is married in Glasgow very comfortable, has five children. Another is married in this town -has two children. Our youngest is at home with us. My wife and myself are on the decline of live, we cannot wait here. You will see by our packet of letters how kindly we would take it if any of your would correspond with us. I will add no more but hope this will come safe to hand. I remain your loving nephew. (signed) Thomas Tannahill
