Extract from letter to McLean from Pollen. Auckland

November 23 1871.

On my return from Ohinemuri ten days ago I wrote you a privated note thinking that the Taranaki, as advertized, was to sail next morning but she had not arrived, so I got it out of the Post Office and send it now, if you have time to read it, there is the key to the Ohinemuri proceedings.

I have had two deputations since in the persons of Rapatu and old Hopihana, asking me to take the wire by Ohinemuri, but I told them that all sides having agreed about the other line, I was satisfied and would not disturb the arrangement. I have shut up Dixons, their friends the lawyers were waiting for a case of breach of contract.
