My dear Bishop,

I consider your telegram to Richmond has been a most valuable piece of pokanoa, it is unfortunate that the ministry will not open their eyes to danger until some sad calamity occurs. I have requested them to retain the scouts at least 20 of them till the aspect of affairs is more tranquil, this however is declined on the score of expence and only 4 retained for the Wairoa.

Tareha stated that it might be necessary to encounter the Hauhaus at Waikato as well as at Ruatahuna. I do not know that I can add more recent news beyond what I told Mr. Richmond about the intention gathered at Waikare by one of Paera Hapes Natives that the resolution of that tribe was not to engage any more in open warfare, but to adopt a system of Kohuru to be carried out as at Poverty Bay whether he will revolve that bit of news and turn it to account in the cabinet or not I do not know.
