DescriptionDated 16 December. Thanks for 'friendly spirit in which my remarks on the subject of mission schools were received'; feared that CMS had not realised the importance of 'native' education following the establishment of a colony; 'it is by Christian influences alone, and those influences not resting in profession' 'but carried on to the formation of Christian habits that a less civilised people can be sustained against the new temptations and difficulties which arise out of the presence of a mixed community of our country men'; reports on movement towards establishment of Board of Missions.
