Sir,

As there is an opportunity of sending to Napier tomorrow, I have the honor to send the following report.

Ihaia TeWaru who was reported to have been killed by Te Kooti has returned from the Urewera country - he reports that he has seen both Te Kooti and Nikora since the fight at Ngatapa - Te Kooti was not wounded and says that he lost very few men.

Ihaia also reports that Te Kooti has returned to Ngatapa.

From what I hear I do not think it likely that the Urewera as a tribe will join
