May [1849]


The enclosed letter came into my possession which I take the opportunity of sending to you.

I [am] happy to tell you that my son who you so kindly acted as Godfather for is now grown a fine boy, when yourself and Mr Taylor paid us a visit at the paripari and I hope I may be able by some means to send him to be educated very soon. Old Taonui desired to be remembered to you. We are all well thank God.

I remain Yours Truly
Lewis Hetet
To D McClean Esq.
[Addressed to D. McClean Esqr, New Plymouth. Readdressed in another hand to Wanganui.
