Abstract

"After consideration I find that I could not provide you the samples of cane you want for less than 50 milrels and to charge you such a sum for articles of so little value is what I don't like to do. ### The canes grow in the lower end of the Lake Gacia--the distance by water is ten leagues--and by land 4 leagues--but at the present height of the water the road is impassable. ### My opinion is that it would be much better to wait till you arrived here, and that you should go yourself and see the place you would then be able to give your constituent a proper acount both of the quantity and the qulity of the canes. You have come a long way in this business and I think your account would be more satisfactory after personal inspection." I remain dear sir yours very truly W. T. Yule
