Wainui
Decr. 8th. 1863


Dear Sir

You will on your return of course hear all the particulars about the late alarm, and perhaps of my having been to the Taupo plains - Thinking you might like to hear all that I could tell of my journey which is not much I have enclosed a copy of my Journal for the three or four days that I was absent, I would write it out more plainly but I have no morepaper. I forwarded to you at Auckland an outline of what took-place respecting the Oero affair. I have since seen Renata Pukututu (the most troublesome of the party who lays claim to the dead timber about the open land, and he makes another excuse, that they were never shown the boundaries round the edge of the bush, all of which are very poor grounds to work upon - The Native here are very quiet the last news from I can make put appears to have done them good many will not believe it, or they endeavour to make themselves not believe it -

I remain, Dear Sir,
Your Obt.Servt.
Saml. Locke
D. McLean Esqr. Napier
