Jas. McArthur Esqr

Dalwood near Maitland.
[24? 26?] Nov. 53

My Dear Sir, 

I enclose you Captn Best's letter upon our shipment of wines per Vimeira – 

You will be much disappointed – as I believe your experience heretofore of shipping in wood – has been most encouraging – Was it the smallness of the casks which caused the damage? 

I have a commission from my friend Mr Everett of New England to send him a hogshead of wine by his dray which will be in Maitland about Christmas – would it be convenient to you to furnish me with Ancarot [Ancorat], Reisling or Bordeaux, of the same as that sent to Captn Best – and at no great advance in price – I could be a customer to the extent of two hogsheads.  My Dear Sir
very truly yours
G. Wyndham
