The [indecipherable] charge of the gardeners

The Honble
Sir William Macarthur, M.L.C.

* They will probably be despatched in Mary.

[In cross-hatched writing]
have been made up, also I [indecipherable] I have a house full of guests, among them an [indecipherable] & [indecipherable] Onslow.  Alex left us yesterday.  Col. Onslow is very ill again.  I do not think that he can last much longer.  With warm love to the ladies, Arthur generally & the Bairns.
