Ki a Te Makarini

E ta,

Kia rongo mai koe, ka hoki koe, ka haere mai koe ki te whakarite taua i te kainga mo Teone, i Te Witi. Katahi ano ahau ka whakaae atu ki a koe mo taku hoa, kia noho tahi maua ko Teone. Heoi ano te korero.

Na Hamiora Pakaiaki

To McLean


Listen, when you return, come here so you and I can arrange the land for Teone at Te Witi. Only now do I agree with you about my friend, that Teone and I live together. That's all to say.

From Hamiora Pakaiaki
