Mount Herbert
3 July 1863

My dear Maclean

I think I shall be able to run down on Monday to meet the steamer and arrange about my losses p.Royal Bride - so you had better not think of coming inland till after the steamer has been in.

I wrote Brooke Taylor about getting some forms of summons for the Jury in Augt. printed and sent me, but the post has brought none - Would you ascertain if he has sent them, and if not, please forward them by any oppy. occurring between this and Monday. I shall leave here on Monday afternoon most probably and be with you early on Tuesday.

No news from Taranaki - provoking. Lots of recruits for Defence force I hear.

In haste
Yours always
H. R. Russell

The Judge has asked me to procure the use of the Provincial Pilot boat for him to land in, which I suppose you will arrange. We must do the thing well this Assize.

The Judge thinks the Wellington authorities are indulging in a false state of security as regards the Natives.
