April 18th, 1865.

My dear Sir,

I have received yours of the 13th inst. and regret very much the present unsettled state of affairs at the Wairoa.

I hope matters will soon begin to assume a better aspect.

In reference to your homestead I fully recognise the justice of a value being put upon buildings existing at the time of the purchase, the value of such buildings to be appraised and added to the upset price of the land but I have invariably refused to admit the principle of allowing buildings erected since that time to be included in the same category, indeed every one applicing for such a privilege has been refused.

I am, My dear Sir,
Yours very truly,
Donald McLean.
G. Worgan,
18th April, 1865.
