Ki a Makarini

E hoa,

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

To McLean

Friend,

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
