My dear McLean

Herewith is a letter from Mr. Biggs and a number of Maori letters from Turanga - It would appear some mischief still lurks in that quarter.

There is enclosed also some letters from Paora Teapatu Wairoa about his land -

I have procured a better photograph of Te Waru than the one I sent the other day and enclose it here -

Renata Pukutu of Pahtangata has written about - the Rangihiro a business as you will see by enclosed translation, or rather the original which I have just found.

Everything is quiet here and we had a glorioux day's rain yesterday; the streets are quite muddy - something new.

I will send the kerosine from Poverty by Lord Ashley - Mr. Byers starts for Mohaka to look after some there on Saturday.

Yours truly
Joseph Rhodes
