Volume 72: Macarthur family correspondence relating to wine, 1846-1900: No. 036
Mr Smith has expressed a wish to receive another cask if it is good in lieu of the one now on Hand. With regard to the £18.16. Balance I will try Burgess & Dix for a part, & await your reply as to the amount you expect from me upon receipt of which I will remit immediately. With Kind remembrances to my Cousins and apologys for not having sooner remitted the £26.16. without waiting an answer to my letter.
Remain My Dear William
Your affectionate Cousin
Arthur H McArthur
Js McArthur Esq
I received your invoice in May and some of the wine in June last. - Since when I have been very much occupied, in trying to work ahead, which I am gradually doing.
