a candidate for your suffrages, I can therefore merely refer to the general principles I have laid down as an index to my future conduct — in ques. tions involving no fundamental principle, I should, if elected, vote in accordance with the views entertained by the body of the electors ; and should I have the misfortune on any question of principle to differ from their decidedly expressed opinion — I should in that case as readily resign my trust into their hands as I now willingly come forward to accept it I have the honour to remain, \^/ Gentlemen, Your most obedient, humble servant, Frederick A. Wsld. Nelson, June 30, 1853.

Wairau, May 30, 18 S3. To E. D. Sweet, Esq., and the Gentlemen who signed the above Requisition. Gentlemen— l thank you for the honour you have conferred upon me by the expression of approval contained in the Requisition above referred to, and I consent to allow myself to be named as one of your representatives in the Provincial Council about to be established in this Province.

We seem agreed as to principles, and if I become your reperesentative, should my opinions undergo a change on any fundamental subject, I shall feel bound to make that change known, and shall consider myself bound to resign my office, should a majority of my supporters at any time require me to do so. I am, gentlemen, • Your obedient servant, Joseph Ward. Waimea West, July 4, 1853. O the ELECTORS of the TOWN of NELSON.
