'Wairoa'
April 11th 67


Dear Sir,

I have thought the matter over in reference to my holding here, and I think on the whole that it would be better for the block to pass entire into the hands of the Government. In which case all I shall need will be time to remove the two buildings fencing material etc.

I have requested my Father to see you on the subject and arrange the matter with you upon any terms that may be considered fair - the removal will be an expence to me as also the loss of rent paid to the Natives - whatever valuation you may set upon my services I should be obliged if you would add to the a/c - my Father will explain my motives - I leave the affair in his hands -

I have the honor to remain, Dear Sir
Your obedt. Servt.
George B. Worgan
His Honor D. McLean Esq.
