Kentish Town October 16th 1801 


Knowing you are greatly interested in the welfare of His Majesty's distant Settlement in New South Wales, I have taken the liberty of sending you herewith specimens of Iron, extracted in the Country in Gosford from the Iron-Stone found in the vicinity of the Town of Sydney, which I am told is superior to the finest Swedish Iron.  Unfortunately none of the Crucibles would stand the blast of the Furnace or a considerable quantity of the Iron would have been procured.  Should you wish to see me on this, or any other subject, I will do myself the honor of waiting upon you before I return on board the Buffalo, which will be in about 12 days.  I have the honor to be, Sir, with the greatest respect,

Your most obedient humble Servant

Wm Kent.
