Monday Nov. 8/58

My dear Sir,

The White Swan arrived early this mng. and leaves this afternoon for Nelson -- Many thanks for your private of the 5th instant, and your wishes shall be attended to I shall not be able to answer your officials by this days post, as there are many natives in Town about the Katatore block, amongst them Hapurona, of Huirangi, Karipa, Mahau, Raniera, Tahana and others. They consider it advisable to stop at Waiongana taking the river for a boundary right away to its source, and I imagine it would be desirable to take it provided they are not unreasonable about the payment

I am in favor of buying land anywhere in this district when the natives are willing to sell, and would trust to the Chapter of accidents for an oppy. of connecting the blocks.

In haste,
Faithfully yours,
H. Halse
