To Port Nicholson, to McLean

Greetings to you. This we have to say to you, that the boundary should be clarified, for there is upset over the boundary and that impacts on the boundary. So we say it should be put right and it is our role to set out the boundary so it is altogether correction. To us the correct boundary goes from Orangikuku and runs on out to Wareama, Mangapokia, Ihutu, Tauokahukara, Humurau, Te Warewarau, Taraotatakirangi, Te Pori-o-Hinemihi, and it is here at Te Pori-o-Hinemihi that the boundary meets back again. This is to inform you of the people who authorised the boundary, beginning here:

Wiremu Paroane Manini, Ihaka Takahiwai, Te Wirihana Te Oioi, Hori Herewini Mare, Wiremu Kingi Kahukuraamaru, Te Manihera Te Au, Henare Te Mahukihuki, Karaitiana Te Tua, Mikaera Wera, Tamati Wiwiana Te Kokori, Te Retimona Te Korou, Mohi Te Whatauta, Kipora Wakamaa, Rahera Te Raehinahina, Anaru Waerao,
