Stewart Island

25th. July 1872.

Dear Sir,

With reference to a letter addressed to you by Mrs. Jno. Hunter (Miria Papako) of this place :-

I know nothing of the merits of her claim; but as she is quite unknown to you, I can with pleasure bear testimony to her good character. Having seen her frequently since I came to reside here 18 months ago, and having known of her by repute before, I would feel much confidence in any statement she might put forward.

I dare say you may remember my meeting you once or twice on board the "Sturt".

I remain, dear Sir,
Yours very truly (Signed)
Charles Traill.

P.S. You may probably know Miss Orbell from Otago. She was to be in Wellington about this time, and if you know of her being there perhaps you would kindly alter the address on the enclosed letter, but otherwise let it go to post with its present address. Excuse this trouble.

To:- The Hon. D. McLean.
