New Plymouth
March 8, 1856

My dear Sir,

The crim con case has been heard and for want of evidence dismissed greatly to the disappointment of Paneta and his friends who had been looking forward to the loaves and fishes. Paneta afterwards made application for a summons agst Tawara who had admitted his "hara" but when the view our law took in a case where the woman's character was notorious was explained, he abandoned his intention to prosecute. In this as in all other cases where law does not put money in their pockets considerable dissatisfaction was manifested and an appeal to their own customs was threatened, by men upon whom great trouble has been expended by Missionaries.

No news from Mangaraka Henere (Puni) same as usul wants all the land.

All quiet in Auckland. faithfully yours,
H. Halse.
To:- McLean Esq.
