John Macadam Esq M.D.
Exploration Committee

I beg to solicit information respecting the particular duties you require the applicants for the leadership of the Exploring party to be able to perform, also whether the committee require any other volunteers, and the remuneration for same.

Two or three gentlemen, young, hardy, energetic, and well accustomed to bush travelling in Australia &c would enter with spirit into the expedition should your committee be in a position to hold out sufficient inducement in the way of remuneration for the privations they must necessarily have to undergo.

I have the honor to be
Your obedient servant

Arch J Garriock
