Note 30.—The Mokomoko Jetty

Note 30.—The Mokomoko Jetty.

In a communication to the Superintendent of Southland, dated the 25th February, 1864, R. M. Marchant, who seems to have been an engineer in connection with the public works of that province, writes: "In reference to your Honour's requirement of a return of all money paid on account of the wharf at Mokomoko and the branch line of railway in connection therewith, I have the honour to inform you that £9,585 16s. 1d. has been paid on account of the wharf, and that I will return the amount paid on the branch line of railway in connection therewith as soon as I can obtain a return enabling me to separate a payment for work executed on the branch and main line together."
