18th. September 1872.

Dear McLean,

Am very late this morning. My prospects here are very good, - but I am afraid of the Taranaki, and - - -. Standish says I have a majority there.

I leave for Taranaki in the morning. I shall spend every hour canvassing.

No effort shall be wanting. I have risked all on this cast, and must win if possible. I have every iron in the fire that can safely be used. Hold our party together, and I trust to be able to swell the number in a few days.

Yours truly (Signed)
J.W. Moorhouse.
To:- Donald McLean Esq.
