E ta, ko te kupu pai o ta taua korerotanga mahue i a koe te tuhi i mahue ai i au mau e tuhi mai no roto hoki i te utu nga i aku korero i puta ai, ko te kupu nei kia haere tatou ki Taranaki ki te uiui ki te take o tenei he ka pare atu ai ma te Kuini e whakawa i waenga nui i a Te Kawana raua ko Wiremu Kingi. I kite hoki koe i te whakaaetanga nuitanga a matou katoa ki tena kupu ma te Kuini e whakawa he oti me te mea nei he kupu korero kino tena ki a te Kuini i whakatoremitia ai e koe i hapainga mai ai ko to kupu tito mo te kakari a te Maori ki a te Kuini. E ta, kaore te Maori e mohio he kakari tana ki a te kaini; ko te nei hoki kati te huri i te korero e ngari whakaae mai ki ta matou kerero kia hui katoa tatou ki te tuhituhi pukapuka ki a Te Kawana kia whakamutua te kakari kia tukua ma te Kuini e whakawa tenei he, me tuhi hoki te tahi pukapuka ma tatou ki a te Kuini kia tonoa mai e ia te tahi kai whakawa ki waenga nui i a tatou ka hui ai tatou ki te whakawa i tenei he; kati ma te pu; tukua hoki tenei te whakawa kia toe ai te tangata.
