A. W. Howitt Esq
Sale Gippsland

Dear Sir
Yours of the 23rd is just to hand.
Many thanks for your kind invitation
for the new year which it will give me
much pleasure to accept if I can manage
to do so. I could not possibly leave
Melbourne before the 1st Jan so that
I would see you in Sale. My ability
to pay Gippsland a visit will in a measure
depend on the weather up here. It has
been very dry and unless rainfall
I would have to return here as soon
as possible. However I will do my
best. This is a wonderfully dry locality
the rainfall for years seldom being over
12 inches and the average for last
three years 8 inches.
I am my dear Sir
Yours Sincerely
ALP Cameron
