My dear McLean

Yours of the 30th ult. reached me on Monday the 7th - finding me prostrate on a sick bed from which I am not yet permitted to rise, a sharp attack of Diarrhea and Fever, I have told Friend to send you the money for Naylor, £30, as requested also the other matters mentioned by you, Halse will look after the ''Maori Messenger'' but I hope to be about again myself in a day or two, meanwhile even thoughts about business are interdicted and I suppose when in the Doctors hands, there is nothing for it but to submit I am very sorry to hear you are suffering, and hope you will soon be in snug quarters again. I wrote you last week my letter was I believe taken by Buddle who was to have started for the Waikato on Monday morning.

Yrs. truly
Thos. H. Smith
