Lord Lyttelton. Adelphi, Monday, August 12, 1850.

My Dear Lord,

—There are two or three points in your letter of Saturday on which I shall take a leisure moment to trouble you with a few remarks: but being hurried now, I confine myself to saying how very glad I feel at your approval of my letter, and to informing you that various reports this morning (especially from my brother who has been to Canterbury in Kent) almost satisfy us that the requisite number of labourers will be obtained without any relaxation of the law as to high character, and with no great relaxation as to payment of a share by the emigrants themselves. Indeed, it may be said that our fright about the emigrants is at an end.
