Ki a Makarini
Tenei ano taku kupu ki a koe. He raruraru o to matou kainga, no konei ka mahue to tikanga i au. Otira, ehara i te mea e mahue i ahau, e mau ora[?] ana te whakaaro i au. Kia mutu te raruraru, ka hoki atu au. Ka mutu.
Na Ihaia Wanganui, Okirihau
English (E Ma)
4 December 1848
Here is another message to you. There is trouble in our settlement, so I have left aside your proposal. However, it's not that I've given up on it, it's still alive[?] in my mind. When the trouble is over, I'll come back. That ends it.
From Ihaia, Wanganui, Okirihau
