My dear Sir,

I feel much obliged for your letter of the 10th. inst. as it reveals the very unscrupulous attempts made to gain office. I should like to see the exact terms of the telegrams and letters to Potene. Stafford promised everything much more than he could perform before he got in and afterwards withdrew from them as suddenly as he had made them. Nothing could have a worse effect on the Native mind than such a vacillating course of conduct.

I hope the next time I visit the North that we may have a long chat together. How are the Schools progressing

I remain etc. Sgd.
Donald McLean
