Copy of a letter from Mr Josh Williamson
Parramatta 23rd Jany 1828
Herewith I tramsmit, you a true copy, of the Acct between the late Mr Rowlth Hassall & the late Mr James Williamson, and I trust that the same, will meet a spedy conclusion, having been of such long standing
I beg leve to remarke, that, during a period, my Father was alive, since his last return from England of nearly 10 years, no presentment was made to him by your Father for nearly 5 years when your Father died, and still, nothing transpired of any acct existing between us, 3 or 4 years more elapsed, presentment until about (or more than) 12 months and then comes an acct* after Mr Williamsons Decease. It is quite ab enigma to me?
I am Sir
Yours &c &c
(Signed) Josh Shortld Williamson
Mrs I Williamson
* This last acct I have not put in the acct General JSW
Copy of a Letter sent to W. Arkell
Parramatta, 28th March 1828.
I have to acknowledge the receipt of yours of 13th Inst I do not recognize any agreement with you respecting your Wool. That however which I did receive was under the same conditions, respecting time and the mode of payment, as, belong to Messrs Lane and Tom. Beside, this sample of your last especially, is so inferior, that even on the conditions above named I cannot possibly do any more than allow you storage till you can dispose of, or sort it, and make it saleable.
Signed James Hassall.
