1868 (?)

Wednesdy. Mg. (8 o'Clock rather cold).

My Dear Sir,

With many thanks I return your N. Papers: I feel very much obliged to you for your so kindly remembering me with them.

Could you conveniently fix some day this week for my seeing you in your office on our Business? (Friday would suit me well -- but I will make any day suit.) I purpose going inland again! next week.

And if you would read the Correspondence with Mr. Domett, concerning T. Su. 400 -- also have some talk with Cr. Lds. Commissr., Mr. Weber and Mr. Wilson about the bit of land here on the brow (cut off from the end of the road, in '66) -- it would help on matters, which should be settled.

In haste I am yrs. truly,
W. Colenso
