Volume 72: Macarthur family correspondence relating to wine, 1846-1900: No. 342
I estimate roughly the cost about £80.
I propose on this purchase to hand you £50, and if I am able to effect ready sales, I would wish to renew the order to enable me to keep up a Stock. This to be paid by P/Note with the balance added at 3 mo credit. If I can pay off a part before the Bill comes to maturity so much the better for me.
It will cost me about £20 to procure bottles & cases in the most careful way I can go to [work?] I would like to try some of the young Wine we spoke of to sell at a low price in draught -
I regret to make so long a letter & take up your time. I am anxious to make myself clearly understood by you. You will therefore I hope forgive me.
The Hay Press has arrived Freight £1 to pay I will forward it on Monday. Would you kindly enclose me the above amount ([indecipherable] not available [indecipherable] today.)
I am Sir with much esteem
Your Very obliged & obedient Servant
