Parramatta 29th Novr 1822


I beg to return your Excellency my respectful & grateful thanks, for the obliging and ready manner, in which you have been pleased to express your desire, of carrying into effect the instructions of Lord Bathurst, with respect to the additional grant of 5000 acres of land, in the Cowpastures.

In obedience to your Excellency, I have now the honor to submit a plan for the measurement of the additional 5000 acres, & for the consolidation of the whole of my lands in the Cow Pastures; which will, I humbly conceive, insure as far as is now practicable, the fulfilment of his Lordship's wishes, - "that a tract of land should be secured to me, for preserving my flocks in their present state of purity & perfection, without incurring the risk of loss or interruption, from the establishment of neighbouring settlers.

I will not dwell upon this

His Excellency
Sir Thomas Brisbane
