a hau mi te mate a te whenua raua ko te tangata,

E tai, Tena koe i tenei ano te mahara nei ki tenei kupu, whangai nga aku neme,

E hiahia ana e mate wai ana E tai tena koe

Na Manuhiri

Kia Hare Reweti Kei Akarana

I enclose a letter for Mr.McLean.

The reference to the party of hauhaus who lately visited Hamilton, and their wanting to go to the Rawhiti would almost bear out the truth of the statement that Tawhiao is going to send messengers to te Kooti to urge upon him the advisability of keeping quiet.H.T.C.
