do you think such a visit expedient? If possible answer this question by return of post.

I have arranged a credit for you at Wellington for £5000 which can, if you arelikely to need it, be increased. But the English October mail is not in yet, and pending its arrival. I have not wished to draw a larger sum.

Fenton is returned to the Waikato under injunction to do as little as possible in the Runanga line.

I have had to start Drummond Hay to the Piako with a flea in his ear.

Johnson is up here for a few days. He is making a plan of the Wangarie blocks.

I have no time for more,
Yours very truly,
C. W. Richmond.

Auckland
12 Janry, '58.


My dear McLean,

The Governor started on Wednesday the 6th. for the Bay and had a pleasant passage of 26 hours. He is accompanied by Mr. Whitaker and Mr. Smith and John White. They appear to be engaged in koreros about the site of the proposed new town.

The Governor had some idea of visiting Ahuriri in the Frigate after his return from the Bay. Looking to the present posture of affairs there do you think such a visit expedient? If possible answer this question by return of post.

I have arranged a credit for you at Wellington for £5000 which can, if you arelikely to need it, be increased. But the English October mail is not in yet, and pending its arrival. I have not wished to draw a larger sum.

Fenton is returned to the Waikato under injunction to do as little as possible in the Runanga line.

I have had to start Drummond Hay to the Piako with a flea in his ear.

Johnson is up here for a few days. He is making a plan of the Wangarie blocks.

I have no time for more,
Yours very truly,
C. W. Richmond.
