My Dear Friend,

I am not at all particular about my Section on the Waiwakaiho and therefore will not trouble you to procure it for me from the Natives, As I would rather re-select in the Block according to my order of choice, and get Land nearer to the Town and therefore more available. Your attention to my request will confer an obligation upon


Your sincere Friend,
C. E. Merchant.
