Dear Sir

Observing the success which has recently attended the importation of Salmon roe to the Australian Colonies (at a comparatively small expense) dont you think it would well repay this Province, to vote a sum for their introduction here? as I am quite satisfied that the temperature of this country is far superior to that of Tasmania for that purpose - Having had some experience at home in the habits and propagation of Salmon, I don't think there could possibly be more suitable Rivers for their maturation than those immediately about here, one in particular being in my opinion quite equal to any Salmon river I have seen at home -

If you approve of the scheme and could get a sum placed on the estimates for the purpose, Williams and myself would pledge ourselves to Superintend the formation of ponds etc. for their reception as well their future management -


I am, Sir Yours truly
Jasper L. Herrick
Donald McLean Esq. Superintendent, Napier
