G: House. Parramatta
Saturday Morg

My Dear Sir,

Captain Duperret [Duperry] dined with me yesterday on his return from Emu Plains, when I did not fail to deliver your father's kind invitation to visit Camden, which I regret today he will not be enabled to accomplish from his short stay with us. He requested me to express his grateful obligation at the same time. With our united best wishes to all your family.

Believe me,
Yours faithfully
signed Tho. Brisbane.

James Macarthur Esq.

I read the note, and then walked to Govt House.

Sir Thomas received me in the most friendly manner. I regretted that Monsieur Duperret could not favor us with his Company, and hoped that would not prevent our having the pleasure of seeing His Excellency. He replied certainly not, but as there is no hurry now I would rather wait for finer weather, and visit you when your father is put in possession of the whole Cawdor Estate. I will have much pleasure in riding over it then.

By the By - I hope you have come to tell me you have received the letter from Major Goulburn. I am sorry to say No Sir - Not yet, why this is very extraordinary. Really
