John Hutt, Esq.Reigate, 27th October, 1849.

My Dear Hutt,

—I return Governor Grey's letter, after making a copy, which you shall have also if you will not trust to my making no improper use of it.

It is simply impossible for me to write about Terms of Purchase. I am not well enough. But I can talk. The subject requires some careful discussion by us in quiet. Some points which you do not mention, are very important—such as a certain proportion of purchase money. I also much wish to see you with a view to suggesting the means of preserving the harmony and a zealous co-operation between the Association and the Company: also some other matters for your individual ease and comfort.

"You could not by possibility have your terms ready for "Wednesday: so, as Tuesday appears to be disengaged, I hope you will pass the day with me, coming as early as you can manage. One quiet day will settle and dispose of many essential matters.
