PRIVATE. Wellington.

14th. October 1872.

Honble D. McLean.
My dear Sir,

As I apprehend another Ministerial Residence will be required, will you kindly make known to your colleagues that I am in a position to treat for the sale of the house I occupy in Murphy Street, and the furniture.

I need scarcely say that it is well adapted, because during last Session Mr. Vogel entertained most of the Members of Parliament in it.

The domestic arrangements are complete, with bath-room, patent closet, etc.

The garden, too, though not large, is sufficient, and can be kept in order without increasing the staff of domain's gardeners.

The price will be reasonable.

I remain, my dear Sir,
Yours very truly (Signed)
W.H. Clayton.
