Te Reo Maori (E Ma)

Noema 17 o nga ra [1851]

E hoa, e Makarini,

Homai aku moni, ko nga moni aku hea. Kua homai e koe o ratou moni, a, kua pai ratou, kua ora, ora tou ngakau. Ko toku, kaore ano i ora noa toku ngakau, ki[a?] pene maku.

Na tou hoa aroha,
na Te Haeana

17 November [1851]

Friend, McLean,

Give me my money, the money for my shares. You have given them their money and they are happy, and you are pleased. But I, I will not be completely happy until there are pennies for me.

From your good friend,
from Te Haeana
