Historical Records of New Zealand
Sydney, 9th January, 1826
I have the honour to inclose a memorial on the subject of the Elizabeth Henrietta, the vessel I saved at New Zealand, which I am anxious should be submitted for the consideration of His Excellency the Governor previous to the departure of Major Goulburn from the colony, as he is perhaps the only person fully acquainted with the object of the voyage on which the vessel was sent, and the other circumstances connected with my undertaking.
In forwarding my wishes in this respect you will much oblige.
John Busby.Colonel Dumaresq, Private Secretary, &c., &c.
