9th Jany., 1869

My Dear Sir,

I have just received a Southern Cross of the 25th Decr. containing the excellent speech which you delivered at the Mechanics Institute on the East Coast War --

I am very glad that the subject has been so well ventilated by an Auckland settler and I hope it may be the means of directing much greater attention to that very important part of the North Island.

I quite agree with you that it matters very little in what Province the district is situated provided that it is properly administered.

I have to thank you for the allusions you have so kindly made in reference to the exertions used by me to restore order on the East Coast.

I remain,
Yours very truly, (Sigd)
Donald McLean
