You are here
of course had I been in Sydney when the Expedition was arranged & will go out now & join them on a second Expedition, if the [indecipherable] are in the [indecipherable]. I long to be doing something. I have a contempt for [indecipherable] work have not science [indecipherable] to take a leading part in the [indecipherable] Societies & are too old for the H. of Commons.
I think that you will agree with me that Dizzy & the Party have done pretty well. The [indecipherable] of Opposition "that 3 headed causes" have done all it could to back them into [indecipherable] & now complain of the little there has been done!! This [indecipherable] & [indecipherable] behaviour has been so palpable that I think it has damaged the Opposition far more than the Ministry. Goodbye & God bless you.
Ever affy. yrs.
