COPY. Auckland

January 17th. 1870.



My dear McLean,

Brannigan is gotting copies of Firth's Messases made for you, and I think It so important that you should know the exact whereabouts of Te Kooti, and of his dispositions, that I send the ''Edith'' with the news. You will see that I have told Firth of your absence, and made a reply of which I hope you will approve.

Te Kooti has got into, or very nearly into, a trap, where I think he may be caught; and it appears that he begins to think so himself.

I have taken the telegrams to the Governor, who seems to approve of Firth's views of the case.

The Airedale has not yet arrived.


I am yours very truly, (Signed) ....
Pollen.
To:-- The Hon. D. McLean Tauranga,
