The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 24

Sub-Enclosure to Enclosure 2

Sub-Enclosure to Enclosure 2.

Messrs. Stewart, Andrews, and others to Mr. Gillies. Lisbeg, Ballygawley, Ireland,

Dear Sir,—

We, the undersigned, being the original promoters of the special emigration to Auckland, regret that Mr. W. Farnall, your agent in this country, so far from receiving the support and assistance he deserves from the official representative of the New Zealand Government at home, appears to have been thwarted in every possible way; and, were it not that we place implicit confidence in Mr. Faruall's representations, we should in consequence have given up all idea of further prosecuting this movement.

We have therefore to request that you will be good enough to give, as far as possible, full authority to Mr. Farnall to make such arrangements as he may consider advisable to the success of the enterprise, and consequent interests of the colony.

We make this request solely on our own responsibility, and without any previous communication with Mr. Farnall on the subject.

Waiting your reply,

"We remain, faithfully yours,

George Vesey Stewart, J.P.,

(For self and several emigrant families).

Michael John Andrews.

Thomas Adderly, Clerk

, Incumbent, Ballygawley.

James M. Cleane.

Andrew M'Master, Surgeon

, Carrick Dispensary, County Tyrone.
