Recently my work at Messrs. Standish and Norris's having increased, they proposed to make the engagement permanent at a salary of £100. For this I prepare plans, and assist in the office. I am allowed extra for surveys, as well as to undertake private work when not otherwise occupied.

Once more assuring you that I shall always feel very grateful for your kindness to me at all times.

I remain Dear Sir,
yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,

I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 4th instant apprising me that Mr. Fitzgerald had applied to have me appointed to assist him in the Ahuriri survey, and to send you a copy of my reply to the offer of the appointment subsequently made by the Civil Secretary.

For this I am aware that I am entirely indebted to your interest, and I cannot express how much I feel your kindness or regret that after having solicited employment in the Public --- service I should find myself declining it. The circumstances however could not have been forseen, and were beyond my controul.

Recently my work at Messrs. Standish and Norris's having increased, they proposed to make the engagement permanent at a salary of £100. For this I prepare plans, and assist in the office. I am allowed extra for surveys, as well as to undertake private work when not otherwise occupied.

Once more assuring you that I shall always feel very grateful for your kindness to me at all times.

I remain Dear Sir,
yours faithfully,
John Rogan
