Pencilville New Town, Near Sydney, 21st. June 1845
My dear Cousin
It is so long since I have heard from you and which I intirely blame myself for as of late I have become a very bad correspondent not only with you but with every one/ for with my breavements and embarrasments I almost gave up every enjoyment and social comfort till when I came to reflect I thought it wicked and sinful to dispair / it is the Lords will and it is right we should be punished or we should not know ourselves, / you may remember in my last I told you of my making myself responsible for a certain persons bills to a very large amount/ will you believe it I have never had the slightest help towards returning them altho promised and I am sure might have been dupe
