Sepr. 29th/64

My Dear Mr. McLean

I should have answered yours of the 29th Ultimo sooner, but waited till I had seen the Natives upon the subject, and last week I missed the Post. When at the Pawhakairo I found that it would be useless my trying to do anything with the case, and advised the Natives not to use force, but to apply again to you. It will be a difficult and disgusting case for you to handle but I hope the Govr. will to say the least show their decided disapprobation of Tareha's conduct.

Hoping to see you some time next week

Yours faithfully
Saml. Williams
