  • price at which Butchers meat has arrived, and the desirability of feeding our increasing population demands serious attention, and probably hints may be obtained of great value for the future—& I am sure from the universal fame of your name anything from your pen will carry great weight— If it would not be asking you too much, I would venture to beg an interview with you—& would come to Town some day & run down to have a few words with you— Apologising for thus troubling you | I remain | Most truly yours | John
