3. Leiut.-General Cameron, C.B., to His Excellency the Governor, Sir George Grey, K.C.B.
Sir,—I have great satisfaction in forwarding to Your Excellency the enclosed account of an engagement between the troops, under the command of Colonel Greer, 68th Regiment, and the rebels at Tauranga, in which the latter were defeated with great loss.
Our own loss was small, considering the number engaged, the heavy fire to which they were exposed in advancing to the attack, and the resistance made by the enemy in their rifle pits.
This very successful action reflects the greatest credit upon Colonel Greer and the troops under his command, who fought with the greatest gallantry.
D. A. CAMERON, Lieut.-General.
