My dear Sir,

I thank you for your obliging letter of the 4th inst. I am very glad to find that you are taking the steps you refer to to bring the cause of justice in NZ prominently before the public.

I don’t know whether you have seen the NZ Spectator of the 3rd Nov. If not I can let you have it. In it appear the last letter written by my brother to the editor, which I fancy could scarcely have appearing in any other paper in NZ previous to the departure of the last mail.

My brother at the beginning of Nov had recd some copies of his pamphlet to the D. of N. from England: so I should think by the next mail we shall see what effect it will have in NZ. For I think the purport of it could not have been generally known there. Mr Fox, indeed, at the opening of his pamphlet is evidently impressed with the idea that he is the first to broad the views expressed by him, which are more or less quite in accordance with my brother’s views.

Excuse haste,
I remain
Dear sir
Yours faithfully
Charles Hadfield

F.W. Chesson Esq
