December 4th. 1868
The concentration of the natives at Te Ahu and Te Waihirere, has been proceeded with. I enclose copy of notice issued. Fires were observed last night in the direction of Hikurangi, and Te Ahi Manawa. I sent two scouts to the back hills of the inland Waikato. They returned this evening, reporting fires still burning in the direction indicated. The natives here are in a state of considerable alarm. Generally, things are quiet. Things do not appear flourishing in Turanga. We are anxiously expectant of news.
I beg to remain dear Sir, Your obedient servant (Signed)
To:- His Honor D. McLean Esq.
The Commanding Officer considers it necessary, for the better protection of the women and children of the Native Race, that they assemble at Te Waihirere and Te Uhi Pas; instead of at present occupying out-lying and exposed positions. The immediate attention of the Chiefs left in charge is requested to this.
(Signed) Geo. Worgan.
