COPY. Napier

4th. December 1868

My dear Stokes,

I fully concur with all you say in your note of the 28th. ult., and have referred the subject to the Officer commanding the District; who, I feel sure, will take immediate steps in the matter.

I not only think that all out-settlers should be armed, but I have recommended that each should have an allowance of ammunition to be expended monthly, in practice. This I conceive to be the only method by which men unaccustomed to fire-arms will become useful in an emergency.

I remain Yours very truly (Signed)
Donald McLean
To:- Robt. Stokes Esq.,
