Dear Sir

As Laquin is now off to Napier I take the opportunity of writing - I have just returned from a meeting at Turiroa where the people are anxious that I should commence surveying the Turiroa Block at once they offered it all including the bush - They are anxious to have an European settlement there - Ropu and Paora are now commencing a Pa on the opposite bank they are anxious to get some Flags (Union jacks) all the Hauhau have returned excepting some of the Waikato - but they have no where to return to, they will all be driven on to this coast Laquin has done his work well -

I remain Dear Sir
Your Ob.St.
S. Locke
To His Honor D. McLean Napier

P. S. I trust you will approve of the native police for the danger is not over yet by a long way, but I will again soon. S.L.
