Volume 58: Sir George Macleay correspondence, 1848-1880: No. 507
You are here
My dear Friend
Your last letter of the 30th of August reached me in due course & two days after your letter of the 24th per Whampoa came to hand. What wonderful passages these fine lean steamers now make. I wish that I could report upon the Case of plants sent by this Boat, but unfortunately my friend Lincoln has not yet been able to get possession of it. A thousand thanks for it, it contains just the things I want & I can but trust that they will come to hand in good condition. I have read over all your "paranoia} in re Veitch, I confess that while sorry for the [indecipherable] you have met with
Sir W. Macarthur, etc. etc. etc.
