I beg leave to apprise you that the nine thorough bred Merino rams which I engaged to supply Government with at three Guineas a head are now ready.

As the season is now arrived when these animals require to be shorn I take the liberty to recommend that some person be authorised to receive them before the heat becomes more excessive or should it be inconvenient to remove them at this time they can be marked with the Government Brand and be shorn at Camden.

I have the honor to be 
Sir, Yr obedt. Servt.
