No. 2.
Mr. Donald McLean to Mr. Alexander Mackay.

Wellington, 15th August, 1866.


In reply to your letter of the 11th of July, 1865, respecting a reserve set apart for the Natives at White's Bay, near the Wairau, a plan of which you enclosed, I have to state that the boundaries of the reserve as delineated on that plan corresponds, as nearly as I can recollect, with the arrangements concluded with the Natives at the Wairau respecting this reserve.

l have taken the opportunity of expressing my opinion on this subject to His Honor the Superintendent of Marlborough, who is at present in Wellington.

I regret that your letter should have remained so long unanswered.

I have, &c., Donald McLean.

Alexander Mackay, Esq., Commissioner of Native Reserves.
