My dear McLean,

I avail myself of your former kindness to ask you to look over the Native parts in this long story. You will not require to labour through it all, but can see the Native parts by the contents. I found much difficulty in mixing this chapter up, But even yet the chapter is like oil and water. Dont let any one see it, and dont lose it as I have no other copy and you will oblige


Yours sincerely,
A.T Thomson.

Have no delicacy in marking what is wrong. Good native ideas to work into the story are much required.
