Sir,

I am extremely sorry to have to trouble you with this, I should have waited with patience the result of that decision of which you promised to give me the early information in your letter of the 19th ult, but from the situation of my affairs I am obliged to crave your indulgence to have an early answer. I have a business to dispose of, find much money laying out in trade, so that the time there is from now to the time proposed for sailing is not more than sufficient. From the indulgence you have shown in quickly answering my letters I feel an assurance I shall still meet the same kind attention.

I am your very humble servant

James HOOLE

Mr. COCKBURN presents his compliments to Mr. GOULBURN. Mr. C. is very desirous of knowing whether the tender made by James HOOLE for myself and ten others is likely to be accepted – we were informed by Mr. GOULBURN's letter to Mr. HOOLE on the 10th inst that it was under consideration. Mr. C. is anxious for their success as he knows some of the party to be good industrious people & hopes Mr. GOULBURN will excuse his troubling him on the subject
