COPY. NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. To:- Donald McLean
Wellington. Sept. 16th. 1868



News from Taupo. Urewera assemblage. Europeans likely to be attacked. Natives there openly declare they will follow what their God tells them. They are getting more unsettled every day. Wairoa open to attack. Europeans leaving there. Poverty Bay as bad. The Bishop says it was a great mistake to receive Constabulary from Wairoa, because at the time, ex-prisoners had been irritated by the three unsuccessful attacks. The fact of Fraser's force being away will act as an inducement to attack us.

(Signed)
Locke.
