DescriptionSilver, George, from Funchal, Madeira, to James Murray, advocate, Aberdeen. Silver is the owner of an estate at Muchalls, apparently living abroad for health reasons. He discusses reasons for speedy sale of Muchalls to enable him to meet debts and retain other family property - 30 years’ purchase might be obtained. Appointment as a deputy lieutenant of the county would give him more standing if he had to continue to live abroad. There is also mention of attempts to obtain a cadetship in the East India Co or an army commission for his brother John at present in India.
