COPY. (The following Telegrams are all clipped together in the following order, although the dates do not run consecutively.) NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. To:- D. McLean
Sept. 22, 1868



I sent the following to Whitmore on 14th. viz., --- I believe no immediate danger exists at Napier. The hostile natives are planting, and when that done I think likely they will pay hostile visit either to Wairoa or Poverty Bay. News now received alters the position I think troops required at Wairoa, their absence amounts to invitation to Hau Haus to attack.
