26th. May 1872.

My dear McLean,

I am so sorry not to be able to go in and see you, and I told Norman yesterday to be sure to explain to you how unwell I had been; and although now convalesant, I am very weak, and not able to get so far as Hamilton.

I should be truly sorry if you left Waikato without my seeing you; and if you will kindly drop me a line to say when you will be in Hamilton again, I will, if possible, see you then; and if you return via Cambridge, and would look in upon us here, it would give me very great pleasure. I am so glad you are alone. I was mortally afraid our friend Sir G. would come up. He could do no good, and might do infinite harm. But I look upon your visit as most opportune, and, like all your visits, likely to bear good fruit. I do not again need to tell you how fully I agree with all your views on the Native question

If you come this way, I hope you will come and lunch with us. We always feed at one o'clock.

Ever most sincerely, (Signed)
P. Leslie.
