Redhill, Reigate, 28th December, 1847.

Dear J. A. Smith,

—Constant attention to New Zealand affairs since I came to town satisfies me that the Company may be restored to great usefulness, and immediately too, by means of the Church project. But indeed Mr. Cowell and I agree about many things to be done without delay, every one of which will help to revive colonization and set us up in the world. There is one point on which we are bent, viz., the substitution of doing useful things every Court day, for the mere jabber which has lately occupied the Directors exclusively.
