July 18th 1871

My dear McLean,

I send you by this mail the papers in the case of Tirimata, Marshalls woman; she has taken legal opinion and wants the money to proceed. I think you would do well to guarantee the costs to the extent of £50. The public caution to operators like Marshall would be worth the money. I send you also an application for a license for a native house at Ohinemutu. I don't know whether anything of the kind has been done before or whether you have decided views about it, but there seems to me to be no good reason why if a hotel is to be licensed in a Native district at all a Native should not be the Landlord always of course under stringent conditions as to house, furniture, etc. etc. It is worth considering.

The Luna goes back to you at last a full ship, Fairchild says. His Exy. will be ready by the 1st or 2nd August.

Clarke will give you all the news from Tauranga. I hardly know what to think of the news of the great meeting at Te Kuiti for which invitations from Tawhiao are now out, and at which the Pakeha is to be permitted to assist but we have so many indications of the evil disposition of Waikato that I dare not hope for much good from it. It was said at first that Rewi was the mover, and Waikato antagonistic, but now it appears that Tawhiao himself is getting it together.

The weather is still fierce, and there is much influenza. These incidents with the falling off of yield in the Caledonia have a depressing effect. The two first causes disturb me and have floored me for some days. I find my work rather more than I can comfortably manage when I am not in high condition, nd long very much for a holiday. Compliments to Ormond and believe me,

Yours truly,
Daniel Pollen.
A. G. S.
