January 16th. 1869
I have reason to suspect that Rewi to Ngahu and wife, Hirini, and wife; together with Raia, - all of Lower Wairoa, - having got away from Te Kooti's party at Turanga, have made their way towards Te Wairoa.
The only method of effecting their capture would be through their relatives, whom I am tolerably certain, possess some actual knowledge of their whereabouts.
They will do nothing unless first assured of their safety. I would be glad to know if I may take any stops towards arranging the matter, an I think their capture would be of some value, especially that of Rewi, in the way of obtaining information.
I beg to remain Sir, Your obedient servant (Signed)
