The Founders of Canterbury
Redhill, 11th March, 1848
My Dear Godley,
—The enclosed is chiefly mine as respects the composition of the argument: but the view is my brother's, and differs from my view of the subject a week or two back. I have been converted to his view by the reasoning which we have together put upon paper. Though the materials of the paper are his, and it ia written by his hand, and in his name, still, as the mere workmanship of the argument is chiefly mine, he wishes me to send you the memorandum. I fancy that it is conclusive against Lefroy's plan, and that Lefroy is one of those very rare people whom reason commands.
I shall not fail to meet you at the New Zealand House on Tuesday, and hope that Lefroy may come with you to meet my brother whom I shall get to town for the purpose.
