My dear Sir,

I have read with much interest your letter of the 14th. inst., and feel much obliged to you for sending it.

The Ngapuhi representative will keep the Northern tribes fully advised. He is a very sensiable intelligent man. I should have liked very much to have seen Henri Mohi's letter; as his knowledge of the working of the Native Land Court is considerable.

I shall be glad to hear from you when you can spare time to write; and I hope that the rheumatic attack with which you were afflicted when I was at Hawke's Bay has disappeared. If you would like a trip to the Hot Springs at Rotorua, I should be very glad to give you a passage to Maketu, and a horse and guide on to the Lakes.

Hoping you will excuse this short epistle, I remain, Yours very truly, (Signed)
Donald McLean.
29th. September 1871.

To:- Revd. W. Colenso.
