I think he cannot be very well acquainted with cuts of beef, as he says rump steak, sirloins, and a few prime cuts off the ribs, together make a considerable part of the hind quarter. He also appears to think Mr Tasker was trying to mislead because he was a few pounds out m calculating the weight of a beast. If the profits of Mr | Taskerarelarge, what must they be to some •who signed the uniform price, and whose cuts of beef do not cost more than half the price per 1b ?
