MUTU.—E rima nga hereni i tae mai ki a matou i a Akuhata, 1874, na Rewi Timaru. Kaore ana moni tuku mai i muri nei. Me tuku mai ana moni mo te tau 1875, me au ano hoki, mo te nupepa i a koe.

E kohia ana nga moni e nga Pakeha i runga i te ngakau marere, ara he moni whakarite mo nga mahi whakangahau, he nui hoki nga tikanga e whakatako- totia ana e tika ai e pai ai taua hakaritanga. He ti i te ahiahi, muri iho he waiata, he whakatangi, be korero ngutu. Ko te Hira te Mutu hei whakatangi i te piano. I te po ka tahuna nga ahi tuku ki te rangi, ano he matakokiri e rere ana.
