Mr Pedcock assured me that he had offerd 300 guineas for the 3 Emues

Buffalo Portsmouth Harbour Novr :16th:1801


As the Buffalo will go out of Harbour to Spithead in about a Week I think the sooner the Emues, you did me the honor to accept, are landed the better; they are at present in the most perfect although they have been onboard thirteen Months:  I never saw them look better.  We shall sail for New South Wales about the end of December.  I have the honor to be, Sir, with the greatest respect,

Your most obedient, humble, and
devoted Servant
Wm. Kent.
