E hoa, e Te Makarini,

Tenei ano taku kupu. Kia rongo mai koe. E mahara ana ranei koe ki toku waka e takoto nei, kahore ranei? Engari korero koutou ko te Kawana ko te Ture ki te tikanga mo te waka, ka toru tau i takoto ai. Ko toku whakaaro ia kia toru tekau pauna mo nga tau e toru. Ka hoki mai koe na uta mai nei, ko reira tatou korero ai, a to taenga mai. Heoi ano, ka mutu i konei.


Naku, na

Friend, McLean,

Here is another word from me. Listen. Do you remember my canoe which is lying here, or not? Well, talk with the Governor and Durie about the decision over the canoe, which has lain there three years. My idea is £30 for three years. When you return inland here, then we can all talk, when you get here. That's all, I end here.


From me, from
Timotiu of Patea
