Te Wairoa
Sept. 15th 1867


After all the men of Major Frasers company is settled - their will be required for the officers about 900 acres - do you think it would be advisable to make any arrangements with the natives for that quantity in the Block which I wrote to you about some time ago - on the other side of the river from Pakowhi - namely the portion they want to lease.

I have the honor to remain
Your most obedient servant
George Burton
