Tauranga
2nd Novr. 70


My dear Sir,

Since writing to you this morning I received the following in a private note from Major Mair. "Nepia Toki who seperated from Te Kooti some months since, and a small party are up Waireka, he sent in to ask about terms and I have just written telling him to surrender and trust to the clemency of the Government - I expect he will be in by the 5th."

Mr. Hamlin has just returned from Taupo and informs me that, a considerable number of Tahau's party at Patatere, including some of the Chatham Island prisoners, are about to surrender unconditionally.

At Major Mair's request I have purchased 9 tons of potatoes and forwarded them to the Uriweras at the Putere.


I remain my dear Sir, Yours very truly,
W. Moule
The Hon. D. McLean,
Native & Defence Minister, WELLINGTON.
