30th. November 1868



Sir,

In the event of any attack being attempted by the enemy on our frontier, I consider the Mohaka just as likely to be the first point of assault as the Wairoa. Therefore it will be desirable not to remove any natives from that quarter, without first intimating to me, the cause or necessity for such a step, except in case of great emergency, when immediate intimation is to be forwarded here.


I have the honour to be Sir, Your most obedient servant (Signed)
Donald McLean.
To:- Major Lambert Commanding Colonial Troops Wairoa.
