The catalogue was a small one, and the selection of wool offered poor. Prices in general, with the exception of cross-breds, show a rise of id per lb compared with closing rates of last series. The change in tbo value of cross-breds, if any, is in sellers' favor. We estimate 230,000 bales as being probably available including old stock."
