Wellington,

14 Octr., 1868



My dearRichmond,

The peace and security of Hawkes Bay and the East Coast is of such very grave importance that I shall endeavour to the best of my ability to act upon your Memo of yesterdays date.

With reference to your private letter I consider that the position of the Colony is such as to require that unity of action should exist among those who are in any way responsible for the public safety. I am prepared to act accordingly and shall therefore refrain from entering upon a discussion of party or other considerations which have been raised in your letter.

I remain,
Yours faithfully,
D.McL.
