My dear Sir,

My natives having written telling me that Col. Lambert had arrived at Taupo I rode over to see him and gave him all the information that I could on the state of affairs here, he of course will tell you everything but I may say that there is no danger whatever of any disturbance - I wrote to you about being fired over Hohepa. He of course has made the most of it so that he may get arms etc.

I only recd. the letter from your secretary yesterday telling me that a trooper would be sent up monthly.

I need not say that no trooper has ever arrived.


John St. George.
His Honor D. McLean Esqre.
