Apl. 2nd. 1872.

Dear Mr. McLean,

I gather from Mr. Ormond's telegram that Hapuku will sign what I require, I merely want him to send Hart and Buckley as soon as possible a telegram or a letter (the latter preferred if it could have arrived here before the 6th. Inst.) stating his reasons for sending us the telegram revoking the authority who induced him to do so and who induced him to file the same in the Supreme Court at Napier, what were the inducements held out and all the surrounding circumstances. If I get the telegram in time I'll place it in the file of the Court and then perhaps the Judge may ask our friend to explain his conduct, a letter setting forth all the facts might be afterwards obtained which might be useful for any ulterior steps in which our mutual friend may be concerned. There can be little doubt of the mover in the matter but moral certainty will not satisfy the Court. Messrs Locke and Lyndon aught to impress upon Hapuku that Russell is taking the steps not his trustees who are his real friends and that the proceedings are expensive and each telegram and especially the contradictory ones cost his estate a large sum of money. You will be able to explain the position of affairs if you have a moment to spare at Napier. Wishing you a pleasant trip,

Beleive me faithfully yours,
P.A. Buckley
The Hon. D. McLean.
