5 July 1848

Friend, McLean,

I wrote[?] to you at Wangaehu and at Turakina. Now, from Rangitikei inland is our own side and that of Paora, Te Waka, Heremaia, Te Waitene, Te Manihera, and Perehamene. The river of Rangitikei is my boundary, on the other side of Ratikei[Rangitikei?]. You should organise for just one payment for this land now, the payment to be in August. That's all.

From me,
from Aperahama.

Write to me if you arrange it.
