Letter from A. Wyatt, dated 4th. February 1850.

COPY

My dear Sir,

Many thanks for your very interesting letter. The only thing I am sorry for is, that I have it not in my power to allow anything to the Native Chief who induced Fabey to surrender; in-asmuch as Mr. King wrote to me officially that the Deserter had surrendered himself. A copy of this letter

was transmitted to Wellington; and the original will have to be appended to the Court Martial.

Your private letter being put in contradistinction to an Official, will not, I fear, be of any benefit to the native. I have sent in an extract of it to Wellington.

We are all as dull as ditch-water here; no fashionable arrivale; no marriages; nothing.

Is Sir. G.G. (or S.S.) coming to Wanganui? He threatened to come.


Yours truly (Signed)
A. Wyatt.
Wanganui 4th. February 1850.
