Te Reo Maori (E Ma)

Haere ra, e taku pukapuka, ki toku hoa aroha, ki a Makarini.

E hoa,

Tena koe, ka nui toku aroha ki a koe, otira tenei ano taku aroha ki a koe, ko taku tikanga i whakapuaki ai ki o korua aroaro ko Kawana i te taone i Huatoki, mo Mokau, mo te utu i taua wahi. Kaore e wareware i au ta taua tikanga mo taua wahi. Kua wareware pea i a koe.

Na Hone Pumipi

1 Akuhata 1851 Ki a Makarini kei Poneke

English (E Ma)

Go off, my letter, to my good friend, to McLean.


Greetings. I have great affection for you. But my affection for you is also over this, my proposal which I put before you and the Governor in the town, at Huatoki, about Mokau, about the payment for that place. I will not forget our proposal for that place, but you perhaps have forgotten it.

From Hone Pumipi

1 August 1851 To McLean at Port Nicholson
