Scope and content

Has received two letters from Owen dated the 14th and 17th. References to a double match which this winter may bring to a conclusion. So they are like to lose Owen this winter, but his reasons for absence would avail anywhere ... It is hard to answer Owen's query in the second letter. Most people there talk at random and take their aims from the newspapers. Some would have the miscarriage examined into in the first place; others the accounts of all the 22 millions already given; a third sort of a more public spirit would have some more millions first given since the delay of giving last year did no good to the common cause. How 4 or 5 million more may be raised - in case it be given - is yet in nubibus. Land must do if all Neale's projects fail; he and those who eat and drink gratis without paying either poulterer or butcher will be for what they call home-excise which miscarried last session but by few voices. Though Harbord who pretended to be master of North Holland economy be now gone yet others will push on the project, but the country gentlemen and some others have each their objection against it. But if they go upon the money in the first place all will be carried as desired, there being a large majority for the Court that will attend. Is sorry for Mr Rowlands's loss. Has heard nothing of the drover.
