send the annexed list of kumeras to some native official in Auckland to obtain and send, I tried last year, but Rogan that I wrote to was out of the way at Napier I think. Old Karauria is a useful chap in the right direction, for he is not difficult to steer.
A countryman of yours, and mine on one side, a Mr. Alexander has good prospects of getting up a saw mill Company to saw logs floated down the Waitara from Ngatimaru, he he seems enterprising, industrious, and fearless without being foolhardy. The Natives like him, I think he would work in the interests of the Govt. and that on the whole you will find him very serviceable in Ngatimaru.
I enclose a few proofs of tomorrow's leading article that I have written for the "News".
Yours ever truly
