My dear Sir,
I send you the copy of a letter I wrote to the Duke of Newcastle not that I imagine he will take the hint I make, but some good may be done by letting him know that the eyes of some at least are upon the judgement of the Government, and the more, doubtless the better.
I could hardly I suppose expect a reply to my letter. It might perhaps, also, be desirable could some independent member be influenced to ask for my brother’s explanation of the Govr’s charges, indeed libels, in case they appear alone. The Government can hardly be capable of this, I hope. However strange things sometimes occur when a political motive is to be attained.
I see the NZ news by telegraph is that the war continues. Next wek will give us particulars tho evidently the Times now suppresses all or much unfavorable to the Governor.
My dear Sir
