Superior Stock & Crops

The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser  

31 July 1803

We have the satisfaction to announce that the stock throughout the Colony for the last year, has had an increase far superior to that of any former; and that the crops at Hawkesbury and in all other parts, were on appearance by no means inferior to the most luxuriant and abundant seasons.

No injury whatever has been sustained by the late heavy rains, but on the contrary, the wheat has been forwarded in its growth, and the gardens yield an ample recompense to well applied industry.
