this and time is up

Give my kindest love to DrM. and all friends ([indecipherable]) Kind regards &c Oo

It is now only 2 years since I ws last in Melbourne the place is grown immensely - I Haven't seen anything of S- or heard of him for a long time = don't know where he is or what he is doing = No good I'll wager - I almost think I can get on best without his kind advice & assistance = Don't you think I'm coming out starting Surveyor all at once = It has cost me some little application =

Well my Dr. I must say good bye
And believe me to remain
Yr affec Jno.

The James Baines has just arrives bringing news of peace

She carried away her mainmast just outside yje heads

I hope to be a Govt Officer nect time I write
