The Founders of Canterbury

Redhill, Reigate, 27th December, 1847

Redhill, Reigate, 27th December, 1847.

My Dear Godley,

—Yours of the 22nd induces me to say that I had anticipated your stipulations with respect to time, by always speaking of the salary as a payment to be provided for for "two or three years." But, as before explained, I would not settle anything officially and definitely about salary till you shall be on the spot. I haye no doubt of being able, after ten minutes conversation with you, to arrange the whole matter in a way perfectly satisfactory to you.

The Irish emigration to New Zealand, of which Dr. Hinds spoke, is, I fear, not very important: for it was only by accident that I heard of it at New Zealand House. The corres-page 17pondent of the Company on tbe subject is a balf-pay officer, named Staunton, residing in Dublin, who has friends in the colony. His address is not by me; but I imagine you could readily find him out.

I shall expect to see you on the 11th January.
