My dear McLean,

Gray, one of your old Policeman, has just called in to say he starts to-morrow for Wanganui, and from his anxiety to know where you are, I apprehend he means to pay you a visit. I wrote to you a long letter yesterday, per post, or rather enclosed to Woon; for, for the life of me, I cannot muster confidence to put a single letter in the office here.

I forgot to tell you that Honi Ropiha could not take your sow, owing to his having no food for her, and afraid that she might incur expenses by breaking into other people's property. Under these circumstances, we, in conjunction with William, thought it would be much better to sell her than to board her out, where she would incur expense. Peter Elliot, I believe, has given, or is to give 30/- for her, - a low price certainly, but otherwise she would have ate up her value before you return.

Gray has just called, so I must bid you good-night.

very truly yours (Signed)
P. Wilson.
Tuesday evening.
