May 23/64.

My dear McLean,

Will you write me a line to tell me how that Herman Stapleton is getting on his friend wrote to me to know does he still drink, or is he reformed, would it be any good their sending him any more money. I hear from him that he is in Whitmores service. The Gate Pah affair was a serious one and has revived the interest taken here in the war.

I hear from England that my speech and resdutions abt Waitara are considered a good hit - a cousin of mine heard people speaking about them very favourably at the Clubs 'men of course taking interest in Colonial matters'. N. Zd. attracts much attention now.

The Goldfields at Marlbro are all the rage at present.

Yours faithfully,
Fred. A. Weld.

P.S. Write and tell me how things are in yr. part of the world.

P.S. If I have the opportunity I will mention the run you speak of I often am asked about such things but the sum cash down is rather above the means of the only one or two lookers out for runs that are at present applying to me for advice.
