Is another South Pacific trip in the offing?

Possibly.  That's all I can say at the moment.

What about those secret dispatches, and the idea of sending stuff to NZ for safekeeping?

All speculation.  The idea that MacPherson would send secret dispatches to London without the High Commissioner's knowledge nor any note to the file seems out of character.  If he took items to New Zealand under a code name how would we ever find them?

There is no motivation unless McPherson was personally convinced that Sir Harry Luke had botched the investigation and the remains were really Earhart's.  We have no evidence to support such a conspiracy.

We received the attached letter from Dr. Duncan MacPherson's niece, Margaret Djurisic, with new information about this key player in the bones drama.  I have asked her to share her documents and photos with us.

 Thanks Matt.

The letter reproduced in the article is dated December 2, 1936.  The timing is interesting. Manning is listed as the navigator (of course) but notice that the itinerary goes from San Francisco to Nanking, China and from there to Hong Kong. This was in line with Earhart's original hare-brained plan to fly nonstop from Hawaii to Japan, refueling inflight from a Navy PBY over Midway, but by December 2 the plan to build a runway on one of the American Equatorial Islands was already well underway and on December 4 the Navy received official notice that "arrangements for refueling Earhart no longer required." (Finding Amelia, page 8.)

Interesting background article about factors affecting the planning of the world flight.
