Letter written from Hobart to John Ingle, London mentioning depression in monetary, commercial and agricultural interests, affairs of Montefiore, Bryant and Hopleys (and their agent Hobbs). The writer also attempted 'from recollection a sketch [plan] of your property in Argyle and Macquarie streets showing the present improvement' of new wharves reclaimed from the sea and the extension of Argyle street cut through Government House gardens, and also the old police office on the corner which belonged to the Gellibrand's trustees but was up for sale, being in a dilapidated state, and would be a valuable site for shops or stores. The letter is torn and a piece is missing with the signature, but it may have been written by Edward Lord.
