30 May 1843 - Bishop Pompallier to Father Épalle, Bay of Islands
He finds the irregularity of arrival of letters, both to and from France, and the fact that letters seem to go unanswered, a major cross to bear. He claims to have received letters from some Marists in Europe that show a bias against him. Progress in conversion is being made, both in NZ and in the Pacific. Heresy is losing its attraction, he believes.
He describes successful efforts to bring peace to two warring tribes.
He lists the sites of stations he would like to set up as soon as possible.
