My dear McLean,

I dont know whether the Sturt may have gone ere this reaches post I was down yesterday and arranged if any news came from you to send a messenger - Carter is back and everything going on in ordinary routine.

I am glad the Waiapu forces are available and that they have done their work so well and speedily - No 10,000 men and six months in this case - Hope you will read the Poverty Bay hau hau a similiar lesson - to be followed up with some amount of confiscation and occupation - I will direct Fannin if in time to send two Envelopes marked private by me yesterday in the office, covering some state papers and some private ones - Staffords despatch is very unsatisfactory as regards Prisoners all to be turned adrift again "even if they have previously taken the 'oath of allegiance'" so tis no use taking prisoners.

Yours very truly,
Joseph Rhodes.
