that Tare ha
and Ihaka may catch them and give a good account of them.
This Ngatapa is a tough nut, and I am not surprised after seeing a sketch of the place that Rapata deserted by all but his 70 toas did not care to reopen his attack. All however are now lively and confident. I am going to start with Towgood for the front at midnight.
Many thanks for your influence with old Raharui, he is a terrible old Hauhau but it is better to have his assent than his opposition. Wi Harongo is the only man now on the Bay who has not signed the deed of cession. I think if Koti is caught with the bulk of his men that we have done with trouble here, and if Tareha and Ihaka succeed too I shall be quite confident.
Send on the Wellington biscuit when it arrives.
I remain ever
J. C. RICHMOND
His Honor D. McLean Napier
