10 p.m.
Dear Sir,

In accordance with Capt. Tuke's instructions, I boarded the ''St. Kilda'' immediately on her arrival off the mouth of the river. Captain Fox explained his errand, which I caused to be immediately communicated to Capt. Tuke, who sent for the Chiefs, and informed them of your wishes. After some consultation, it was determined that Tareha's, Renata's, and Te Hapuku's men should return to Napier; but that Henare, with his, would remain, pending further instructions. Henare is quite prepared to march, if required, either on Ngatapa or Waikare Moana. The messenger has not yet returned from Turanga. We may expect him the day after to-morrow; and some movement may be necessary then.

We have no news from the Lake District. The Mohaka people returned thither to-day.

Ihaka nga is on his way overland to Turanga. Beyond this there is nothing to bring to your notice.

The men will be put on board at daylight tomorrow.


I beg to remain, dear Sir, Your obedient servant (Signed)
Geo. H. Worgan
To:- His Honor D. McLean Esq. Napier.
