completely separated by good boundaries, from other proprietors, we should look forward with more confidence, under your Excellency's liberal auspices, to the completion of our 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; and as the quantity of land somewhat exceeds what I am strictly entitled to, perhaps your Excy may not object to accept payment for the surplus, in stock for the improvement of the public Herds and Flocks.

I have the honor to remain
With great respect
Your faithful humble servant
(signed) Jno. Macarthur
