15th January, 1872.
Referring to the arrangement made with you to proceed to England by the City of Auckland, for the purpose of acting under the Agent-General in connection with Immigration,
I have now to inform you that Dr. Featherston will be informed by the next mail steamer that you are accredited to him, to act in the same capacity and on the same terms as Mr. Birch, of Dunedin, who, you are aware, proceeded to Europe on similar duty not long ago. It is understood that your services will be available either in Great Britain or on the Continent, as the Agent-General may require, and that the remuneration you will receive will be the same as is given to Mr. Birch; also, that the sum of eighty pounds will be allowed you for passage money to London.
It is understood that you resign your seat in the House of Representatives on accepting this mission.
I have, &c.,
H. W. Farnall, Esq.,Auckland.
