COPY. Te Hatepe
11th. April 1867

My dear Sir,

It is my painful duty to announce the death of poor old friend Kopu, He expired this morning at about 8 a.m. He was quite unconcious for some time previous to his death. His last words were expressing his love and friendship to the Pakeha. I am too much cut up to say much, but I think if you have not got further than Mohaka, it would be better if you were to return.

I am my dear Sir,
truly yours (Signed)
L. S. Deighton
