Kaikohe, June 22, 1859.

Friend the Governor,—

Salutations to you. I wish to say something to you respecting the map of my land. I wish (to get a Crown Grant) it to be sealed, as it has been surveyed by Mr. Fairburn, and I have paid the money, £40. There is no use in allowing land to lie idle which has been surveyed, as both the men and the land have become the Queen's, both are under the Queen's shadow; it will be for you to give your consent. This is all I have to say to you.

From your friend,

Hira Pure,
Native Assessor.

To His Excellency the Governor,
