to you about the land should be, - Mountains, mountains. - which prepares him for the future (payment). I beg to thank you for authorising me to charge to the Public, the present to Mupeka. The good that this will do me in the Interior, you know well, I have much to say to you about the Interior, which will form a subject of another letter. Te Wetini is in town; and nearly all the Mokauites, spending their money respectably in horses and cattle, and not in trash, which I am glad to see. I shall have to hold a little levy when I recover a little.
My dear Sir, - there is one thing which I fear will seriously affect Mokau. Takini's son is supposed to be lost in the recent gale. He was under your protection. The superstitious say it's a judgment, etc., Your letter arrived in good time. I interpreted the words which referred to the boy Te Takiu; who, with tears in his eyes, said his heart was light at what you had written; and although he believed that the boy was lost, he would not attach blame to you. I sincerely hope the boy will turn up, for the sake of his friends.
I have just received your Official letter, dated 27th.
May, about the Hua surveys. I believe they are completed. I am sorry to be compelled to leave off here,
I am, yours etc.,
(Signed) J. Rogan.
