[Pencil note:] 18.2.47

Sydney, February, 18th 1847

Messrs J & W McArthur

Dear Sirs 

We shall feel obliged by your sending us immediately if possible, Four Hogsheads of your best white wine. We could sell a much larger quantity of that wine if we could afford to reduce the price as low as 12/ pr Dozen instead of 16/.  We are opening such a quantity of bottles, as Samples, in order to make the wine known, that the price of 16/ pr dozen does not pay us for our trouble. We therefore should recommend you to consider, if it would not be more advisable for your interest to invoice your wine at 3/ pr Gallon. 

Our object in now ordering four Hogsheads is that we think it is not giving the wine a fair chance to sell it so soon after bottling,

We remain, Dear Sirs,
Very faithfully yours
Joubert & Murphy
