I have laid before Lord Bathurst your letter of the 21st July referring to the delay which had occurred in making the Grant of 5000 Acres of Land to your Father in New South Wales, and soliciting either that the same might be allotted adjoining to his present Estate and extending from The District called Brisbane to the River Nepean, as marked Green in the Map which you enclosed - or that his Lordship would permit him to take the whole of that District, consisting of 10,700 Acres bounded by the River Nepean, Mount Hunter Creek, Brisbane, and West Camden
