Historical Records of New Zealand

Baron C. De Thierry To Earl Bathurst

Baron C. De Thierry To Earl Bathurst.

75 Lower Grosvenor Street, Grosvenor Square, 9 March, 1824.

The Baron Charles de Thierry has the honor to present his compliments to Mr. Horton, and having noticed in the Times paper of the 4th inst. Mr. Hume’s extraordinary amalgamation of “Poyais“ with “New Zealand“ (as if they belonged to each other), he takes the liberty to send him such papers as will give him every information on the subject of the colony now raising, in addition to the letters which he has from time to time had the honour to address to Earl Bathurst. The Baron C. de Thierry will court every opportunity of affording His Majesty’s Govt. any further information which may be desired, and he sincerely hopes that if the subject is again started in the House of Commons Mr. Horton will do him at least the justice to state that the Baron C. de Thierry made known his views and intentions to Government long before he took upon himself to make them public.

The Right Honourable Mr. Horton, Under-Secy. of State for the Colnl. Dept., &c., &c.
