My dear MacLean,

I enclose you the tracing of Poverty sketch and my account which I would be glad to receive. I have been obliged to charge something more for the Report and extra information afforded. I trust you will not forget the promised work at Poverrty when it comes off. I expect to leave town for two or three weeks. Nothing has been done about the "Run" Survey.

There are some strangers here one of them apparently in connection with Mr. Rice's visit to Poverty who are reported to have large capital and ready to invest in the purchase of Native lands.

Ever yours,
M. Fitzgerald.
14 July 66
