Volume 58: Sir George Macleay correspondence, 1848-1880: No. 531
You are here
My dearest old Friend
I was much distracted to hear from Onslow by the mail just here in of your knee illness but the report does [indecipherable] without much that gives hope, that I venture to believe that you will be all but [indecipherable] again by the time this note will reach you. May God grant that this may be so & that you will be spared
Sir William Macarthur, M.L.C.
[In left margin]
From your most attached old friend
Nothing but rain here. The Hay reap has been badly got in & only about 2/3rds of the ordinary quantity. The wheat promised also about 2/3rd of [indecipherable] but this will [indecipherable] to spoil [indecipherable] there. Michaelmas [?] is a very sad one indeed for us all who are Farmers or non farmers.
