January 8 [1848?]


To Wellington To The McLean, Friend greetings.

Friend you are welcome to bring to us matters pertaining to the Governor and also to bring to us the payment for Rangitikei, Turakina, and Wangaehu.

It was said by my father that there was nothing wrong with the man who owned the home, the fault was with those people. In regard to us we are satisfied as you two have written down our arrangement, It was my father Te Kawana te Hakeke who made the final decision.
