My dear McLean

Enclosed are four letters for you from the Wairoa just to hand

Mr. Parsons has just called and from information given by a Maorie female living with Charley Corky, it appears pretty certain that Anaru Matete is still at or near Titiokura - waiting to hear how you get on with Panapa and his lot - The bush men want arms as they say Paora Toki is going to make a raid on them for the Stores of flour and sugar - This may be true as Rigby and Proctor owe the natives a considerable amount of money and utu is the notion - I will give some arms to them only on condition that they shall carry them by day while at work and also that some approved party such as Maning shall become responsible for the safe return of the arms or pay for the same.


Yours always
Joseph Rhodes

Lots of ruin this four days past and floods out - Everything green as an emerald.
