Dear McLean,

I had one or two things I had meant to have written you about but this is the last chance for the English mail and I must defer till next post night. One thing before it is too late. Will you before you send the Council Paper about the Land Regulation to Auckland have a verbal alteration made. As printed a portion of the first clause of the Resolutions reads absurdly. If you look in the eighth line you will see the words ''or shall be, set aside for settlement for a term of fourteen years'' Now the words I have underlined are of course wrong and the copies shd. be corrected by having them struck out. I see our friend Bousfield was amiable as usual last week. I wrote Cooper breaking to him as easily as I could that we could not do what he wanted about the road by his place. I just remember that I have forgotten the Sheep Inspector's Instructions you shall have them without fail by next mail.

In haste
Yrs. always
J. D. Ormond
