§ MR. LYTTELTON
I did not find myself able to advise His Majesty to give any direction with regard to the petition, and the petitioners have been answered accordingly. It is not proposed to present Papers on the subject to Parliament.

Will the right hon. Gentleman reconsider more fully the whole circumstances with a view to secure to the Church of Natal its statutory rights as a branch of the Established Church of the United Kingdom?
