Girl Anna Hone daughter of Thomas Hone senior called and asked me to sign her papers as candidate for free passage to New Zealand at expense of Colonial Government. I told her I would do so when she had got the other necessary signatures. Her father was imprisoned some few years ago for a criminal assault upon this daughter. Two of her brothers were as boys convicted of burglary and sent to a Reformatory. They are now in America.
