Sept. 8, 1864.

My dear McLean,

Many thanks for yours and the newspaper - as to the latter you are evidently getting on flourishingly and land must be plentiful if your council gives it away to Masons and oddfellows We prefer selling it in ChChurch I have to thank you for your kindness to Stapleton I have lost his brothers address but in the meantime I append an order on Whitmore for the £10 which you may remember he and I tossed up for in your room take this and let F Regnier give Stapleton say 25/- a week out of it if Stapleton will write and give me his brothers directions I will draw on him for a small sum and continue the allowance for the present till I hear from his brother unless in the interim Stapleton can support himself or other circumstances occur You are obliging me much by taking trouble about this unfortunate fellow. I write in haste

Yrs faithfully
Fred. A. Weld.
