Before you will have received these communications of Brother Leigh’s and Brother White’s visit to the colony and of Brother White’s return to New Zealand. He arrived here on Sunday, 22 February, after an absence of 15 weeks and two days. Brother Leigh remained in the colony, and was very ill when Brother White left, so that we do not expect that he will ever return to New Zealand. Indeed, it is the opinion of all who know Mr. L. and who know New Zealand that Brother Leigh is not at all fitted for usefulness in this land, and we there fore most earnestly intreat you to send us a zealous, active, experienced, and prudent superintendent, and if possible a person will acquainted with the principles of language, and not forgetting his constitution.…
