Dear Mr Partridge,

My father Mr John Webster, of Hokianga has asked me to reply to your favour of 15th ulto re your publication of a book entitled "Pictorial and Biographical History of Old New Zealand".

I enclose herewith a short biography which I wrote out and appeared in our local paper the 'Waitemata Post' on the 29th June last the 30th being his birthday.

I also forward one of his latest photos.

The old dad's memory is failing him a bit but otherwise he is tip top.

He sends his kindest regards to you.

Wishing you all sorts of good luck with your book.

Yours sincerely,
J.C. Webster
