I have received on this day the sum of Fifty Pounds in money
(£50) from Mr.12th March, 1858.Wairarapa District. McLean and Mr. Cooper in payment for my piece of land which I now cede to
Victoria the Queen of England and to the Kings or Queens who may succeed Her for
ever. The boundary commences at Wahatuara and thence to Te Kiorekaiatua, thence to
Orotakapa,Makuri. thence to Ngangaru, thence to Tuokura, here it turns and goes on to
Makuri, thenceReceipt for £50. along the river to Hakikino, thence to Paekawakawa, thence to
Takapauotahito, thenceBoundaries. to Te Puketoro, here it turns and runs to the first boundary, thence to
Ruatapui, thence to Pukepoto, thence to Te Waiwero, thence to Taumatawinau, thence
to Tuwatawata, thence to the first boundary it joins Wahatuara. I have fully ceded
this place under the shining sun of this day as a permanent possession to Victoria
the Queen of England and to the Kings or Queens who may succeed Her for ever. When
the survey is completed it will be settled what the balance of the money is to be
to complete the purchase of this place when the extent and quality of the land
shall be ascertained.
