Inner Temple, Octr 8th 1821

My Lord,

I had the Honor of submitting to your Lordship, last year, a claim I was instructed to prefer, on behalf of my Father, for a Grant of part of the Cow Pastures, in New South Wales, and to which I was led to request your Lordship's attention in consequence of information that H.M. Govt had ben solicited to authorize the distribution of these, amongst other unoccupied Lands. But Mr. Goulburn having intimidated to me that it would be desirable to wait for the return of the Commr. of Inquiry, I forbore to trouble your Lordship with a particular detail of the circumstances out of which this claim has arisen, and should still feel reluctant to do so, if the presence of Mr. Bigge did not now afford the most satisfactory means of estimating the utility of the places that my family have been long engaged in maturing; and if I were not also impressed with a belief that then complete success must mainly depend upon the extension of them of the encouragement originally contemplated by me of your Lordship's predecessors.  


The Right Honble
The Earl Bathurst, K.G.
