Wanganui
September 1st. 1872.


My dear Sir,

I feel that you will be glad to hear that Mrs. Worgan's health has slightly improved. Under Providence, my return has, I believe. saved her life. That is the opinion of Dr. Epps. It will be many days or weeks before she recovers strength, I am thankful, however, that she is pronounced so far out of danger as to free me to attend to my work, to which my absences in Napier have been a tiresome hindrance. I find things here just as I left them. If the debate terminates on Friday, as predicted, you will, I trust have leisure to attend to matters here for a time.

I beg to remain, dear Sir
Your obedient servant, (Signed)
George H. Worgan.
To:- The Hon. D. McLean.
