5 P.M.
Dear McLean,

After a hard ride I am fortunate enough to reach this in time to drop one line per St. Kilda to say the Row is all settled. Tirarau, Panone and there parties left Taramai this morning on their return to Kaipara. The St. Kilda being underweigh I have no time to say more but it will be enough in case exaggerated reports reach you.

I will write you officially by next mail

In haste
yours very truly,
James R. Clendon
