"30th October, 1873.
"I have been an agent about fifteen years, and can give immediately a decided answer to any question I may be asked connected with the Colony I page 23 represent, but can't do so with New Zealand. I can't understand what they are thinking about (if they do think) in the London office. What do you think of a letter I received yesterday, signed A. O. Ottywell, in which it is stated—4 The people taking their passages from Glasgow are all nominated by their friends in New Zealand, and therefore no commission is chargeable. Vide, &c., &e.'"
"I wrote him back that he must be mistaken, as none of the people whom I sent had been nominated; and that, moreover, Mr. Andrew had remitted me the amount of my commission.
"I sincerely hope you will not cease to be connected with the emigration, as I have always received from you immediate and satisfactory replies to my inquiries. I have applied for pamphlets till I am tired of doing so; all I got from them was two, but Mr. Andrew sent me some on Otago."
