Mr Broadfoot has been living a short time with us and says he will see you therefore he will be able to give you more information than I Can Communicate through Paper. I think him a very amiable young man and very steady I have a very high opinion of him, I regret much not having the Money for What goods are Sold handed over to me according to Promise by this Conveyance. I should have Considered it very Safe by Mr Broadfoot but so it is I have been disapointed very much which has grieved me Sorely. I expect by the next vessel Sails from here in about a month I shall be able to send some part or all for what is sold. I should like if Possible you to apoint an Agent to receive the Money here the Agent for the Australian Company Wld. oblige you to remit the Cash with his / I have Sent from the residue of the goods to my House from the Commission Wharehouse and Which I will endevour to sell myself they have offered 2d a lb. for the paint but which I shall not take.
