Te Makiri, Kaipara
20th June 1873

My dear Mr. McLean,

You will perceive by this that at last I am back on my own ground after 3 or 4 months worry an extreme annoyance from a wretched low lived lot by whom the Land Court was surrounded at Manawatu and Waikanae - I am now lamenting in secret the loss of £150 all my salary for the time, and well abused into the bargain. I got such a nice letter from Mr. Fox on that subject that I must send you a copy

I had the Woons at Mount Albert and at this place for several days past. They were well treated and are now at Marriners - Thank god for all things - I breathe free now having no one tagged after me - Porter is awfully ill - I am afraid of him - You know old Paikea is dead - Te Otene was here last night. All Kaipara is against The Murderers.

I saw nothing of Fenton in Auckland. I hear some jealousy exists atmy successful issue in the Manawatu Court. Kiaha tiatu - Am preparing for a tour though Kaipara. Will furnish a report soon after - shall start the schools if possible -

The few sheep 140 are doing well - I lent my money the other day at 9 per cent on the best security when will you give me back my £150. I have told you it was necessary to spend money to accomplish the end. General Cameron said you cannot make omolets without breaking eggs - You can deduce the inference therefrom -

I hear the present Ministry will stand the test this Cession -

Mrs. Farr desires to be remembered to Douglas and yourself -

No more at present from your's faithfully
