Excellency's liberal auspices to the completion of an object that I have so many years struggled to attain. 

Should your Excellency be pleased to sanction the proposed arrangement, I would cheerfully allow for the expense of the fences & buildings, that have been erected; & as the quantity of Land somewhat exceeds what I am strictly entitled to, perhaps Your Excellency may not object to accept payment for the Surplus in Stock for the improvements of the public Herds and Flocks.

I have the honor to remain
With Great Respect
Your faithful humble Servt
