My dear Sir George,

I give this letter to Mr. C. Wilmer, who undaunted by the bad news we have just received, is going out to try his fortune in New Zealand. He takes out with him high testimonials as to his abilities as an officer, and will therefore prove very useful in the Colony. I should feel very much obliged to you for anything you can do to promote his views, or to get him employment.

Very truly yours,
G. Grey.
His Excellency, Sir G. F. Bowen G.C.M.G. etc. etc. etc. WELLINGTON.
