But he was a national celebrity for his opinions, as the clippings from papers outside the Bay scattered through this collection and his widely published obituary notices demonstrate. One correspondent to the Wanganui Herald in January 1882, similarly sympathetic to the plight of Maori, tellingly signed himself, 'COLENSO'S GHOST.' The letters reproduced in this book are all that can be found at present. As well, some other newspaper items have been included if they threw light on the more obscure letters."
