Decr. 18th/65

Dear Sir

I have just arrived at my house I am not able to reach town - Old Mokini at the patea has built a pa and a few arms have been sent him by paul Apatu I believe that Fraser by sending about fifty men under Toha to that place might turn the enemy and keep them from coming this way - The Hauhau have divided into two parties one up the Waiau the other up the Wairoa - This only an idea that struck knowing the country etc. pretty well.

I remain dear Sir
S. Locke
To His Honor D. McLean Esq. Napier

They will build no pa i.e. the Hauhaus
