2nd April, 1875.
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter No. 328, of the 22nd ultimo, informing mo that "in view of the circumstances which led to your retirement from the public service your claim to share in the grant referred to cannot be admitted," and in reply, I beg to state that my retirement from the service was entirely and solely owing to the very harsh and unjust conduct of the Government towards me.
I have, etc.,
E. Brandon.The Paymaster-General, Wellington.
