By some misunderstanding the dray with all our things went to Hodgsons and I sent consequently Mr. Hely to Hodgsons to arrange matters and to have the things brought to Gowrie.

Mr Hodgson made me a present of 12 wethers, which Mr Hughes changed with 2 bullocks. Mr Mann brought me letters from Mr Lynd. Mr Smith
