Glendon , Hunters River

27th Febry 1829


I send you all the assistance which lies in my power to protect you against the incursions of the aborigines. As the Constables are but two in number, it will be necessary for you to render [113] them your aid, & it would be proper that you yourself accompany the party (& I accordingly place the constables under your command) in order by your presence to prevent any improprieties in apprehending the offenders & bringing them before me.

I am Sir

Your Ser

R Scott

W Brooks Esq
