Friend, McLean,

Greetings to you. Listen, Taranaki has come to Pipitea with the people of Puketapu, including Iharaira Te Tuki. Come here quickly, tomorrow, so you can hear soonest what we have to say about the boundary at Waiwakaiho, about dividing it. That is the reason for saying to come tomorrow in the morning. That's the end of this.

Mohi Puketapu
