My dear Mr. McLean,

How many chiefs shall you bring tomorrow: are they Rangatiras or petty chiefs? It seems to me that I had better have them shown into the Council room and come in to them. I will sit down and talk to them. I suppose a glass of wine afterwards will make them happy.


Yours sincerely,
James Fergusson

If you send me the names I shall remember them better when they come.
