Dear McLean,

I send a brick loader just recd. from Govt. that you may see the condition it is in.

The sidings on the road to Taupo the other side of Tarawera are all broken away Corporal Sullivan tells me the road for want of a few days work is almost impassable can you do anything for us it will make a great difference to our communications.


It was bad when I went up. Yours very truly,
C. Lambert.
18th. March. 1869.
