Pineaha Wharekowhai To His Excellency The Governor.
Salutations to you, the father of works. Hearken: we went to Peria to listen to the korero but it was not straight. The Bishop has all the korero, enough upon that.
Taraia and I are coming to Auckland soon. Enough.
This is another word of mine to you. The workmen are working, and are thinking at the same time about being paid, I mean for my work.page 22
We are now going to have our mill built. Rire (? Reed) is the pakeha (millwright), and do you also find a skilful pakeha at once for this mill.
To the Governor,Auckland.
