My Dear McLean

Your Messenger from Ormonds has just come in and I have advised his going on to Ellinghams and passing on Ormonds letter. I fell in with a great variety of Reports as I came up and advised a person I met from Hunters to call and give you what information he had in case Ormond's letter did not reach you beforehand It is a relief to know that the report is in correct as regards the Hauhaus having reached Porangahau, and to be aware that Ormond is on the look out.

Yours faithfully
Sami. Williams

Ormond mentions that Ngairo informed the Porangahau Natives that he is coming to Poti you will know what that means for Panapa said the same thing. It means Poti till resistance is offered and then the other thing. I am much mistaken if Ngairo and Wi Hapi dont bring on a row before long somewhere and most likely here.
