1869 (?)

Friday eveng.
My Dear Sir,

Herewith I return your two Independents you kindly sent me with thanks. I think you may gather somewhat (political) from Fox's speech. -- Should you note anything in your Otago papers concerning Bp. Jenner, I would thank you to allow me a sight when you may have quite done with them: -- I expect there will be some warm work down there with his crosses and candlesticks!

I send you a few of our peaches, and beg you to accept the same -- I would they were better.

What a blowing dirty day this has been! I pity the folks on the Flats. I have not been in Town for the week.

Hoping, you are well, I am my dear Sir,
Yours truly,
Wm. Colenso
