Hick's Bay,
3rd Sept.

H. M. S. Brisk.
My dear Mr. McLean,

I arrived here yesterday at 4 P.M. and the Huntress arrived safely 4 hours afterwards. There are no signs yet of the expedition and I fully expect to have to wait some days.

I am going to give the Huntress 10 Tons of Coal and our sailmakers will finish her sails in a day or two. The Master tells me that she does not steam more than 5 or 6 knots, but she will answer our purpose very well at Opotiki.

Will you kindly forward the enclosed to the Governor

and believe me,


Yours very truly,
Charles W.F. Hope.
