Baron C. De Thierry To Earl Bathurst
Baron C. De Thierry To Earl Bathurst.
30 Budge Row, Cannon Street, March 2, 1824.
The Baron Charles de Thierry has the honor to present his respects to Earl Bathurst, and would be extremely obliged if page 624 His Lordship would have the goodness to inform him whether labouring persons emigrating to New Zealand must be provided with a passport to enable them to proceed, and if any permission is necessary, that they may take out their tools. Should any formality be requisite Earl Bathurst will particularly oblige the Baron C. de Thierry by allowing it to be pointed out to him and also the means by which the difficulty may be obviated.
