Letter from Samuel Marsden to Josiah Pratt, February 12th, 1820

Idem. Feby. 12th, 1820.

A letter, Marsden to Pratt, stating, inter alia, “It will require a positive order from the Committee that all the settlers' wives assist in instructing the natives in everything they can, and their sons and daughters as they come of age——. I directed Mr. Kendall's older son to be put into the carpenters' gang, and his daughter into the school. I had forgot to mention that I had purchased a large grant of land from Shungi, and have sent you the deed. It is in a fine situation, rich land and well watered, convenient for the harbour.
