Letter From the Hon. William Fox

Letter From the Hon. William Fox.

New Zealand Colonial Secretary's Office, Auckland,

My Lord,—The letter which you and other noblemen and gentlemen connected with the Aborigines' Society addressed to His Excellency Sir George Grey, .K.C.B., Governor of this colony, in January last, has been referred by His Excellency to his responsible advisers.

They have submitted their opinions upon it to His Excellency in the form of an official memorandum, of which, at His Excellency's suggestion, they have now the honour to forward a copy to you; and of which His Excellency will forward one to Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies.

As the letter in which your Lordship and the other subscribers impugned the policy of confiscation, which the New-Zealand Government has adopted, was published by you, at the date of its transmission to the colony in the "London Times" and other newspapers, I venture respectfully to express a hope that you will give similar publicity to the enclosed memorandum.

I have the honor to be, My Lord,

Your Lordship's most obedient servant,

William Fox

, Colonial Secretary. The Right Honourable Earl Chichester, 22, Grosvenor Place, London, S.W.
