Dear Mr. Fox,

I have seen the new edition of Williams ''Maori Dictionary''. I think I have between 2 and 3000 Maori words that are still not in it.

I made an offer to the Honourable D. McLean of all the Maori words I have for £150. I have not received an answer. This offer I made before the new Edition came out.

Do you think the Government would print an Edition of a Maori Dictionary. If they will I will take charge of it and put the words I have in and the Government can give me any remuneration they think fit.

Yours very sincerely
John White.
The honourable W. Fox, Wellington.
