11th Decr. 1873

8 o'c. P.M.
My dear Sir,

As Captain Crupp is going back in the morning early - I send you a line to say that I am beginning to suffer from the reaction of excitement consequent on the termination of a Court. Having done all the work. The Natives all gone and a dull and monotonous feeling pervades all around this village - How I am annoyed with old Read for not being equal to his word. I advanced the old beggar £18 of my own money. What a flat I was to do so - A large meeting of Maoris took place at Hira's place this afternoon all passed off well -

I am yours,
J. Rogan
The Hon. D. McLean
