A number of the people interested in the 'Opoiti' Block came to me yesterday to request me to find a purchaser for it. This was in consequence of breaking off with Mr. Carroll who had been in treaty with them about it. As Mr. Burton is not at Home just now, I write directly to you, he having told me that you would purchase. You already know the particulars 2475 ac:

The 6 people here applied to me and are the real owners -- there is consequently no difficulty in the way of purchase.
They offer it to me for £400 which I have agreed to -- conditionally on acceptance by Unknown Correspondent in Napier.
I would strongly advise buying; if you do not care for it yourself you may know someone else whom you would like to have it.
I would advise preliminary deed of sale -- advance £100 Balance to be paid on issue of Crown grant and executive of Conveyances. I will tell Mr.Burton that I have written to you as soon as I see him. I don't think I would lose any time, if you entertain the proposal in getting the matter settled and either he or I would attend to it for you. You might have English Agreement for sale prepared in Napier -- leaving blanks to fill in for prices etc. -- and copy of Certificate of Title can be obtained from Chief Judge Nat.Lands Ct.Auckland by remitting Cl/Fees £3.10/ and 10/ for copy

the additional cost for Deeds execution etc. would probably first and last amt. to £50 more -- there is a large block of land behind Opoiti that might be purchased very cheaply hereafter. The Powdrells rent, and will probably purchase the 'Mangaruhe' Block on opposite side River --
I am, dear Sir,
Your obedt. servt.
