Volume 75: James and William Macarthur business correspondence, 1823-1877: No. 038
Sydney 19 July 1847
Since the receipt of your favor of the 7th ultimo three parcels of Rape have been delivered at the works; - the quality of the two first parcels was good, but I am sorry to say the last was very inferior, and so musty as to render nearly one-fifth of it quite useless.
I shall be glad to know how much more you will be likely to have, but at the same time beg to inform you that-unless of better quality than the last - I cannot take it at the price you ask.
