Whereas, an Act of the Imperial Parliament of Great Britain and Ireland, passed in the Sixth Year of the Reign of Her
Majesty Queen Victoria, intituled, "An Act to amend the Law affecting Transported Convicts, with respect to Pardons and Tickets of
Leave," it was, amongst other things enacted, that, after taking effect of the said recited Act, in any Place to which Felons and
Offenders had been or might be Transported by Law, the Governor or Lieutenant-Governor should, from time to time, by an Instrument
in Writing, under his Hand, recommend such Felons or other Offenders as he should think fit to be recommended, to Her Majesty, for an
Absolute or Conditional Pardon; and in case Her Majesty should, through one of Her Principal Secretaries of State, signify Her approval
of any such recommendation, it should be lawful for the Governor or Lieutenant Governor to grant an Absolute or Conditional Pardon,
pursuant to such Instructions as should be sent to him by the Secretary of State, by an Instrument in Writing, under the Seal of his
Government, which should be deemed from the Day of the Date thereof, to have, within such Place or Places as should be specified in
such Pardon, but not elsewhere, the same effect in the Law, to all intents and purposes, as if a General, Absolute, or Conditional Pardon,
had passed on that day, under the Great Seal of the United Kingdom : And whereas the said recited Act has taken effect in the said
Colony of New South Wales : And Whereas George Smith
whose Description is hereunto annexed, having been indicted and convicted at Surrey Assizes
of the Crime of Housebreaking was, in pursuance of the said Conviction, sentenced
to transportation, and was accordingly Transported to the said Colony, for a term which will expire on the 6th day of August which will
be in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty nine
And whereas, in consideration of the good conduct of the said George Smith
since his arrival in the said Colony, I, SIR CHARLES AUGUSTUS FITZ ROY, as such Governor of New South Wales, recommend
the said George Smith to Her Majesty for a Pardon, too take
effect in all parts of the World, except the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland
And whereas, Her Majesty has been graciously pleased to signify Her approval of such recommendation, through Her Principal Secretary
of State for Colonies: NOW KNOW YE, that I, SIR CHARLES AUGUSTUS FITZ ROY, in pursuance of the Power and
Authority so in me vested by the said recited Act, and of Her Majesty's gracious approval so signified, and of the instructions of the said

a Pardon for the Offence, in respect of which such Sentence of Transportation was passed as aforesaid, which shall take effect in all

PROVIDED ALWAYS, and it is hereby expressly declared to be a Condition of this Pardon, that if the said George Smith
shall, at any time during the continuance of the term of his

Her Majesty's Officers and Ministers of Justice, and all other, Her majesty's Subjects, are hereby required to undertake notice accordingly.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have caused these Letters to be made Patent, and to be Sealed with the Seal of the said Territory.
