W. Gittos, Wesleyan Missionary],—bearing his Excellency's commission as Governor-in-Chief in and over the Islands of New Zealand, and Her Majesty's Order-in-Council for their separation from New South Wales.

In the evening His Excellency was to have given a grand dinner at Government House, to which all the elite of Auckland and the surrounding country had received invitations."
