Gundry, Matthew Laurie. -

Thomas S. Forsaith, Esq.

Sir, — On behalf of the Members of your Committee, I am requested to say, that having had under our consideration a requisition presented to you from the Electors of the Northern Division, we strongly recommend you to accept the invitation. Our single object was to see a man whom we deemed so fit, occupying a seat in the Council, and as this- object' can, apparently, be gained without prolonging a contest in the city of Auckland, we think it_ a preferable course. At tho same time, if you r prefer a seat for tho city, we have every prospect of success, and will not relax our exertions to ensure your return. I am, Sir, ' l Your obedient servant, Arch. -Clark, Chairman of Committee. "Auckland,- July 8.-

To Arciiibxlld Clarke, Esq., Mayor. Sir, — Having Ml confidence in the judgment of the Gentlemen whom you represent, I beg leave to adopt their recommendation, and at the game time to tender my best thanks to yourself, my Committee, and my other friends, for the energetic and efficient manner in which they have supported me. I have the honor- to be, Sir, Your obedient servant, Thomas S. Forsaith. Queen-street, July Bth, 1852.

To the Electors of the Northern Division.

n ENTLEMEN,— Having submitted your request to the Committee jwho were undertaking my election for the City^l have, by their advice, decided upon accepting the * invitation with which you have honoured me. In doing so, I have been partly influenced by the consideration that most of my time in New Zealand has been spent in tho Northern Division, and -that I have still large interests at stake in that district, and also by the fact that many of the gentlemen signing the City requisition, are equally interested with you in my return, as electors of your Division. Gentlemen, in offering myself as a candidate to represent you in the forthcoming Provincial Council, I can only* repeat what I have already said — that if elected I shall go into the council with but one object — to repay your confidence by doing my duty independently and conscientiously. I disclaim all party feelings and prejudices, and will, to the best of my ability, promote the interests of the Province generally, by supporting every measure calculated to advance the commercial, agricultui al, social, and moral welfare of the community. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, Thomas S. Forsaith. Queen-street, JulySth, 1852.

To Mr. Patrick Dignan, Auckland.

SIR, — We, the undersigned, having the fullest confidence in the integrity of your principles, and convinced of the deep interest you have in the prosperity of the Colony, request you will allow yourself to be put in nomination to represent the Pen* sioner Settlements in the forthcoming Provincial Council of New Ulster, and in the event of your acceding to this request, w© pledge ourselves to exert all our influence to secure your return. We are, Sir, Your most obedient servants, H. W. Mahon, M.D., Samuel Furley, Edwd. H. E. Black- Edmund Foley, more, John Hogan, James Dilworth, James Cleary, Charles Durbridge, T. Henry, Joseph Brennan, Sergt. J. McAnulty, Sergt. Beer, Hugh Coolahan, Sergt. Kelly, Patrick Quinlan, Patrick Donovan, David Lundon, Sergt. Carsin, Sergt. Mettigan, - John J. Williams, Sergt. Ralph,

To the Electors of the Pensioner /Settlements* Gentlemen, — I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the above Requisition, and in compliance with your request I offer myself as a Candidate for your suffrages, at the ensuing Election for the Provincial Council of* New Ulster ; should I be returned I can only assure you that the confidence you express in my integrity of principles shall never be misplaced. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, ' " Patrick Dignan, Auckland, 23rd July, X 852,
