about a year ago, but part of that was incurred in buying land of which I hold about 35000 acres freehold in Victoria, I however did not like so much debt and by the sale of some land which I held in New Zealand and some suburban land here, and the returns from the produce of my stations I have reduced my liabilities to less than half, and if I am spared and times & seasons not worse I trust to be clear within less than 12 months.  I drew rather heavily upon my last years clip and had to refund £4000
