settled district be under occupation before now.
A company has been formed in Melbourne to work the blocks west of the Darling under the names of "W.H. Wright" and "Otway & Paxton" as you will see on the engraved plan.
I have just written to Jamieson to request him his candid opinion as to the prospects of getting a run, and whether it could be well managed by deputy.
If there is more country in any locality than you wish to apply for, I would feel obliged if you would apply for a few blocks in for me; it is one of the lotteries in life which is worth risking a little for, as I have already said I think east of the Darling wd be best.
