Dear Sir,

As Mr. Poole is going to Napier I have asked him to take this -- Taha has returned from Waikare he says that the people of that part wish to sell all the block known as Tangoio block or the greater partof it. Teira it appears wishes to see you about it -- I hope something certain will be done with respect to land purchases such as the putere political purchases -- I hear that the Waru talks of going to Taranaki -

Something I trust will be done so as to know who commands the men at the stockade for they know that they cannot be punished -- If Pierce comes once a fortnight Hodges must be made serjeant Major so that he can punish them -- Can the steamer come to fetch Kopu Paora and others when we go to get the money for Turiwa --

I remain, Dear Sir,
Your Obt. Servt. S. Locke To His Honor D. McLean Esqre. Napier
