He also called last Monday [thats the?] just as I was stepping into the Carriage to leave town for this place, he had time to tell me of an excellent letter he had rec.d from W.m giving most favourable accounts of crops & seasons [indecipherable]to perfection! The Merchants here tell me that the rise in Wool of late will this year make a difference of £50,000 to the Colony.
