A transcription/translation of this document (by ATL) appears below.
My dear Sir,
I duly received your letter and the wigging for not having written since you left Auckland on affairs political. You ask what progress is being made with the Waikatos, but, I am sure you don't expect me to answer that question. Read the X of yesterday, and you will then learn something about the state of Denmark but as I live in critical times, when to be honest is the passport to Coventry, I must, in consideration of my little ones, abstain from giving an opinion about native affairs.
Do you recollect what I told you in a note shortly after you left? If you do, all I can say is, I have no reason, because I can see no reason, to alter that opinion enough upon that subject.
T. H. Smith is here and will shortly return to Rotorua in his capacity as C. Comr. for that district, in which appt. I wish him every success.
Rogan is also here, he wrote to you by a previous post, and any information he may have conveyed in his letter, may be relied upon. Talk of the - and he is sure to appear. Rogan tells me he has written to you by this oppty., you will therefore have all the news.
