July 21 1871.

Dear Sir,

I should be obliged if you would obtain the Honble Mr. McLean's sanction and send me without delay all the original a/cs of money and supplies advanced by Kinrossand Co. and others on behalf of Mr. McLean to the Native owners of the Ngatarawa Blocks and Maggateretere West Blk. on a/c on the purchase monies of those Blocks. Mr. Kinross has telegraphed to Mr. McLean to instruct you to send the a/cs; and no doubt you will have posted them before you receive this letter: but I write in case the a/cs'may have not been posted.

I may say that the a/cs are of no legal consequence to Mr. McLean as the Natives are concluded by their deed: but if Mr. McLean should require the a/cs again I will send them to you after having made copies to put away with my papers.

Yours very truly,
Hanson Turton.
To:-- D. McLean
Defence Officer Wellington

P.S. Mind you send the original a/cs though copies would be better than none at all. I want the a/cs in detail i.e. including all orders upon Kinross & Co. by the Natives - also all receipts and acknowledgements by Natives, and the general a/c shewing how you made up the sums expressed in the various deeds. H.T.
