Abstract

Letter dated 1st April 1847,from John Leake of Rosedale, in reply to Sir William Thomas Denison (1804-1871), Governor-General, on the questions of convict transportation dated 1st April 1847. Remarks on the fact that transportation should
not cease altogether but numbers should be reduced, convicts should go into private
service as soon as possible after the military discipline on the transport ship,
especially mechanics or farm servants - the Colony had a duty to reform and teach
habits of industry.
