The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 14th December, 1847
Dear J. A. Smith,
—I have engaged to meet the New Zealand Committee on Friday, at twelve o'clock. Will it, therefore, be" in your power to see me in Lombard-street, as early as eleven?
This day's long conference with Cowell has been very satisfactory to me. We have agreed to settle beforehand between ourselves every point of importance that is to come before the Directors; but my view of the future working is too long a story to write.
I sincerely hope you are better.
