Mr Ferguson replied that he paid all the money due to Donald McLean through Donald's agents, Bethune and Hunter. He also makes other complaints about the sale of the land, saying that the boundaries were wrong and they worked land that turned out not to be theirs. He says that the Rangitikei River is taking more of his land at every flood and that the Māori are getting more insolent every day.
