My dear McLean,

I am making up an Estimate of our Expenditure, and with regard to the rations of the men at Waiapu and Poverty Bay I am not sure I quite understood from you yesterday what they are costing. Did you say those for Poverty Bay are 1/6 per ration and those for Waiapu, we might/calculate at 1/9? Also can you tell me if the General Govt. are incurring any expense at Waiapu or Poverty Bay or at Napier on account of rations to friendly natives.

Also are we incurring any expense and if so what on account of your steamer the "Huntress"

Yours very truly,
J. Holt.
21 Oct./65

His Honour D. McLean Esq.
