announced and we invite those who would join in the cry of Haere mai! to write a short letter expressive of their views to be printed in our columns so that all may see it. It will be asked by many What has become of the Maori Messenger ? Let the Manuhiri Tuarangi answer

During eighteen years it has laboured unceasingly for the good of the Maori Month after Month it I has gone forth and traversed the country from Muriwhenua at the North to Rakeiura at the South and from Coast to Coast bearing on its pages the words of six successive Governors to Her Majesty's Maori subjects

Its arrival has been announced at every Pa, it has found its way into every hut its pages have been fingered by almost if not every Maori throughout the length and breadth of Aotearoa It has been read by the Ngapuhi of the far North, it has bee read by the Ngaitahu of the far South it has been read by the many tribes of the interior and to it has spoken the same friendly words of Counsel

It has not been slow to point out and condemn the evils that exist among the Maori while at the same time it has given prominence to and encouraged what was good It has steadily watched over the interest of the Maori and has ever endeavoured by timely and plain spoken advice to turn his feet into right direction and so to promote this moral well being as well as his social advancement

We trust that these efforts have been altogether barren of results This Paper has always been read
