To Edward La Trobe Bateman   June 1855

[June 1855]1

My dear Mr Bateman

It is a source of regret to me to be deprived of the pleasure of seeing you on my humble place,2 as I am urged by business to get to town. I have to thank you for the trouble which you have given you, in order to promote my views, and I am also deeply obliged both to Mrs Cobham and Mrs M'Crae. I shall write from Sydney and state about my proceedings, and I assure you, that I never shall forget the kindness of my friends

yours very truly

Ferd Mueller.


Mr Bateman.
