Friend McLean take notice of this, it is a list of the forefathers of Nga Motu, to whom the land belonged.
This is the genealogy of all our forefathers (that is) of the men who are residing in Port Nicholson; our hearts are very dark (because) we are letting our land go to the Whitemen; let the three years be included in this your new payment.
This is my letter
