Ki a te Kawana Hea

E hoa,

Tena koe. Ka nui toku aroha ki a koe. Tenei ano taku kupu ki a koe he hiahia ana ahau kia homai tiaki moku etahi pirihi, no te mea i whakaae atu ai ahau he raruraru o nga tangata o toku kainga. Ko ahau anake ki toku whakaaro me taku tamaiti me Rihiona; ko nga tangata katoa kahore e rite ana, ka whakaaro kau ahau ki te ai pirihi, kua mau.

To Governor Eyre


Greetings. I have great affection for you. Another message of mine for you is about my desire to be given some protection, some police, because I agree that there are problems with people in my settlement. There is only me, in my view, and my son, and Rihiona. All the people are not like [us], and so I thought if there was a policeman, they could be caught.
