Gentlemen — I thank you for your flattering requisition, and beg to offer myself as a Candidate for the honour of representing you iv tho General Assembly. Most of you are aware that my father and myself have been possessed of property in your district, as well as in other parts of the province, for many years, and that I myself havo been long resident amongst you. Such being the case, your interests and mine are identical, and my object in seeking to represent you is to have a voice in the regulation of those matters which may conduce to our common benefit, especially as regards the keeping down of taxation and Customs duties, as well as of expenditure in nil Government departments and undertakings, at the same time, however, doing everything in my power to further the substantial progress of the colony, together with the practical development of its industrial resources. Having no desire or intention to look for place, I shall have nothing to interfere with the independent action which, in the event of my election, I propose to take on all political matters affecting either our own particular locality or tho colony at large. I shall take an early opportunity of meeting you all in person, and explaining my views, and answering any questions you may choose to put to me on the political subjects which may affect us either locally or generally. I remain, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, Ralph Richaedson. Nelson, November 15, 1870. 2770
