E hoa, e Makarini,

Tena ra koe. Maku tetahi tupeka, mau e homai ki a Mata Waka. Kia rongo mai koe, he korero ano taku, maku ano e korero; kei te mate ano au.

Friend, McLean,

Greetings to you. Please get me some tobacco and give it to Mata Waka. And listen, I have something else to say but I will tell you myself; I'm still ill.

Tamati Waka
