My dear Makarini,

I reached home by 1 p.m. having been 6 hours and 5 minutes on the road; and my gallant steed could have run 20 miles further. I found all right. Your boy arrived this morning at 9 a.m., and leaves by 2 p.m. so that I hope he may reach Turanga by Saturday night. I send you returns and Census for our district. I can go no further, Kaui not being at home, and the Maoris at their ngakinga. I must supply you with mats from my lot. As to price, that is "mea noa iho", and I send no bill. Will you kindly forward the other parcels to their respective destinations. I send a few apples that you may taste our fruit. Please not to forget the Book of Government Ordinances. Will you kindly try if you can procure me a pair of spurs like yours, that I admired in Wellington, and send them to me by any of the Coasters, or overland from Taranaki, to the care of, Thomas Lewis Esq. Auckland.

So no more from
Your sincere friend (Signed)
Wm. Te Huia Baker.
To:- D. McLean Esq.
