27 May 1871.

Dear Dr. Pollen,

I got here on the Queen's Birthday but I can assure you that if the items the Ngatitiata have to grumble about were Soloman and the Queen of Sheba, I have not been told half the glory of the confusion confounded that I shall have to grapple with. I shall however try all I can to do that which is right between man and man.

I do not know how long I shall be here as I have to deal with two chaps who have more spirits than blood in their veins.

Yours e.
John White.
