pp2-4 Letters to the Editor
From Ihakara Tukumaru, Manawatū
Address to Maori disagreeing with the establishment of a Maori king and supporting a Pakeha government and the Queen as protectors of Maori against any other invading country. Supports his opinions with a waiata [song].
Advises Maori to adopt the good and peaceful practices of the Pakeha for well-being and to live as one people.
Suggests that as native species such as the kūmara [sweet potato], fern root, tuatara [large lizard] and Maori rat have been superseded by introduced Pakeha species so with the introduction of Pakeha practices the Maori population will become `half-caste'.
Supports the sale of land at Manawatū so the benefits of Pakeha will come to Maori.
