Dear Sir,

I beg to enclose list of the widows and children of our Scouts, according to your expressed wish.

We have news from one Force, who appear to be at Whataroa, - or at any rate, a portion, - in pursuit of a party under Himimona, supposed to be about forty in number, principally women and children. The information respecting this party has been gathered from some old people captured at Orewha. I have only native report for this; further, that the party proceed to Puketapu on leaving Whataroa.

Nothing fresh from Poverty Bay.


I have the honor to remain dear Sir, Your obedient servant (Signed)
Geo. Worgan.
To:- His Honor D. McLean Esq. Napier.
