My dear Col. Browne,

I thank you most sincerely for the very handsome letter you have sent me, and the kind present accompanying it, which I shall always preserve as an heirloom, and think of the days I have spent under your administration in New Zealand thro' good and evil report with the feeling that I have invariably had the good fortune of enjoying your confidence and sincere friendship. And should you return home you will find me beating up your quarters to talk over New Zealand events and incidents.


(D. McLean) Mar. 16, 61.
