J. Stephen, Esq., To A. Y. Spearman, Esq.

Downing Street, 4th July, 1839.


With reference to my letter of the 13th ultimo, respecting the colonization of New Zealand, I am directed by the Marquis of Normanby to transmit to you, for the consideration of the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury, a copy of a letter from Captain Hobson, enclosing an estimate of the expenses for the first establishment of a colony in those islands. Lord Normanby would recommend this estimate, amounting to four thousand and five pounds, for the sanction of the Lords of the Treasury.

I am, &c.,

J. Stephen.

A. Y. Spearman, Esq., &c.
