Ma chere frere

Got your telegram this morning, also letter last night & was sure the papers would turn up. I see your welcome to Hawke's Bay is to be unusually demonstrative of which you cannot fail but accept with a consciousness that your power and influence have at all risks been exercised in their welfare. Good kind Kinross will be more than glad of having you with him at present. The Harts are well. Got a telegram on Sunday from Castle Point which I was truly glad of. Douglas told me his Gov. had gone on with a fair wind. Large party at Gov. House this evening. Rumours still pleasing about of despatches from Figi etc etc. Mrs St John much better. Was here yesterday for which she got a good scolding as the Col. said she was not to go about.

In haste
Yours Annabella McLean
