Reigate, 3rd September, 1849.

My Dear Godley,

—It is a bright thought, that of noticing self-government in the Instructions.

I had a bad scene with Aglionby yesterday about Akaroa, which he wanted to reserve for another settlement. But he has made the amende; and therefore I only say, Mind and have everything in plain black and white.

I want much to see you; and I will meet you at the North Kent Station, London Bridge, on Tuesday, in order that we may get through our discussions whilst going to Gravesend to see Dr. Lang on board his very interesting Scotch ship. I talked to him a good deal about you yesterday; and I am very desirous that you should pay him this gratifying attention. He is a power in Australasia; and on better acquaintance, I like him better than I expected to do.
