Dear Sir,

E Waka returned to the Kawau last evening, and received your enclosure and concise letter this day, subsequent to the writing of Honi's. He sticks to the business as well as a native can be expected.

E Waka wishes the matter to be allowed to rest until you return. The generality of differences can be arranged in your absence, but the present is one in which you are (by the natives) said to be immediately concerned; and I doubt whether anything I can say will be attended to. Still, as we do not know how long you may yet be detained at the South, all that can, will be done.

Stewart starts at ten to-morrow, and I send you

several letters, European and Native, also all the Nelson papers and Southern Gazettes.

Stewart says he can't carry your saddle. Shall I send it round to Wanganui?

7th. Monday morning. 9 a.m.

Tamati te Ngahuru called with a letter from you. He also said that the natives at Taranaki were of opinion that, in consequence of Hakopa giving them, for Paora's signature to a receipt for goods received at your hands, payment would eventually be asked for them.

He declared that the land would not be disposed of, and hinted that there was a more influential person to be consulted in the affair. That person was, of course, himself.

No further news about E. Waka.
