18 Noema 1851


Ki a Makaora

Ahakoa kua mate ia, ko ana tamariki ano kei te ora ano.

Whakarongo mai korua, e tama ma, ki taku korero atu ki a korua. Kia mahara mai korua ki aku moni, e rima pauna, kia homai e korua nga pauna e rima hei utu mo nga poaka, i utua na ki ta koutou hoiho. Erangi me utu mai ena pauna, me homai e korua ki a Te Makarini. Heoi ano.


Na,
Moihi raua ko Te Wiremu

18 November 1851


To Makaora

Although he has died his children are still living.

Listen you two, young men, to what I have to say to you. Remember my money, £5, which you are to give me to pay for the pigs, which were sold for your horse. But pay these pounds, and give them to McLean. That's all.
