Ki a Te Makarini

E hoa,

E [korero?] atu ana ahau ki a koe mo te pene mo Ngaika, kia kiia atu e koe kia homai e Te One ki a Ngaika, nga utu otaota o tenei taha o Wareama £10. Hei te tekau ma rua o Hepetema, homai ai e Te One.

E hoa, e Ma, tenei taku kupu kia rongo mai koe. Ka peketia nga utu o tera taha o Wareama. Kia mahara koe ki taku wahi i tuku ai ki a koe.

To McLean

Friend,

I speak[?] to you about the pennies for Ngaika, that you said Te One should give to Ngaika, payment for pasture on this side of Wareama of £10. Te One will give it on the 12th of September.

Friend, Ma, this is what I want you to hear. The payments for the other side of Wareama should be banked [?]. Remember the place I gave to you.
