"I am deeply impressed with the conviction that we have reached a crisis in the political history of New Zealand, upon our right action with regard to which now, depends the future of the Colony for good or for evil." - page 3. Macandrew favoured Otago becoming an independent colony, - "I cannot disguise from myself the fact that, could we divest ourselves of the idea of the unity of New Zealand, the true remedy for the existing evils, in as far as Otago is concerned, would be that the Province should be erected into an independent Colony."- page 14. James Macandrew (1820-1887) succeeded William Cargill as Superintendent of the Province of Otago. [References: Bagnall 3233 - "Strongly opposed to the abolition of the provinces"; DNZB.]; 8vo
