THE PRICE OF MEAT.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Kindly allow me a few remarks on the price of meat m reply to your correspondent "Father of a Family." 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 ? It is well known no butcher can cut a better class of meat —although I am not one of his customers.—l am, etc., One who knows something of the Trade.
