My dear Sir,

I have some Piri piri growing on my Coast Run at Akitio; and I am endeavouring to find out what kind of grass or clover will be the best to conquer it. From your knowledge of Botany, I daresay you would be able to tell me.

In consequence of the burr, I was compelled to shear very early this year; which causes a loss in the weight of wool.

I am told Nairn's Run is very bad with it.

I remain,
Yours very truly, (Signed)
Donald McLean.
8th. November 1867.

To:- Revd. W. Colenso.
