Copy of a Despatch from Governor Sir George Grey to the Right Hon. Edward Caedwell, M.P.
My Lord Duke,—
I have the honour to enclose, for your Grace's information, the copy of a private letter addressed by the Bishop of Waiapu to the Colonial Government, in which the Bishop states unreservedly his view of the necessity, of punishing the Natives who have joined in the rebellion in this country, by the confiscation of their lands, stating at the same time the reasons which have led him to form this conclusion.
I have, &c.,
His Grace the Duke of Newcastle, K.G., &c.
