Wanganui 12 Jany. 1872


His Excy. Sir G. F. Bowen, WELLINGTON.

There is no native news of importance here, hardly any comments about Kereopa among the Natives. I am busy arranging and settling questions about land confiscated, that have been in abeyance for years. The Lima will be available at whatever time most suitable for your convenience. I expect Fox here in a few days. Your visit here has been productive of much good.
