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.

18 November 1851
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.
Moihi and Te Wiremu
