Te Reo Maori (E Ma)
He kupu tenei naku kia rongo mai koe, ki te wahi i whakatakotoria nei e koe nga utu, ki a Karira. Ka pakeke au ki taua wahi mo nga ritenga he a Te Kupa ki a au. Ki te kore ona e rongo ki aku tukunga, me ka hoatu ki a ia, ka ki atu ra au ki a koe, e kore e pu. He mahara i te tamariki. Heoi ano, ka mutu.
Naku, na tou hoa aroha,
na Poharama Te Whiti
English (E Ma)
So this is what I want you to hear about the part you played in the payments for Karira. I'm annoyed over that on account of Cooper's wrong treatment of me. If he would not have heeded my offers, and had given it to him, then I could say to you it would not have arisen. It's childish thinking. That's all, the end of this.
From me, from your good friend,
Poharama Te Whiti
