17th November, 1874,
Adverting to your telegrams respecting my transfer to Napier as an Extra Clerk in the Land Transfer office, I have the honor to inform you that after mature consideration I have felt myself compelled to decline the offer. I therefore tender my resignation of office in the Deeds Registry and Land Transfer Department. Permit me to express my thanks to you for the courteous manner in which the officer was conveyed.
E. Brandon.J. S. Williams, Esq., Registrar-General Land, Christchurch.
