COPY. New Plymouth

20th. January 1851.


I beg to acquaint you that I have forwarded, in Mr. H. Halse's packet, the Returns for the year ending 30th. December 1850.

The observations on the Increase and Decrease shall be forwarded per next mail; should I not go in the "Shepherdess" which is hourly expected; she having been detained by contrary winds at Kawhia, a considerable time longer than anticipated.

I beg to presume that you have been made acquainted with my not joining your Worship overland, according to Captain King's letter, which I felt quite capable to have undertaken, had I been permitted to have done so. I very much regret my not being allowed to have undertaken the journey, particularly at this season of the year.

Capt. King has just informed me that if the "Shepherdess" arrives here in 3 or 4 days, that I am to go in her to Wellington. I trust and hope she will be in sight, ere the day is spent, that I may have some prospect of being on my way to you. I beg most humbly and respectfully to conclude, and remain

Your very humble and obedient servant (Signed)
M. Medland
A.P.F. To:- D. McLean Esq.
Inspector of Police.
