An important report in good original condition: "valuable and historical" (Hocken).

Regarding this now rather scarce report, Hocken wrote: "Prompted and promoted by the New Zealand Company, an influential meeting of merchants, bankers, shipowners, and others was held at the Guildhall on 15th April, 1840, to petition Parliament in favour of a systematic colonisation of New Zealand and to preserve it to the Crown… This report was the outcome, and was favourable. The witnesses were E.G. Wakefield, Saxe Bannister, John Blackett, R.N., John Ward, Dandeson Coates, Rev. Drs. Hinds and Beecham, Charles Enderby, W. Hutt, and Alex. Busby. Their evidence gives and account of the natives and their lands, mission labours, origin and history of the New Zealand Company, and the necessity for government and regulated colonisation."
