Letter/Deed, Toha’s Reserve, Wairoa.
A Deed of Sale Agreement signed on (no date written here) 1873, between Toha Rahurahu of Te Wairoa, Hawke’s Bay, Māori chief, and Pereneka Tatana of Napier, Storekeeper. At that time Toha Rahurahu did receive payment from the Government for the sale of land. This signing of the Deed was held at Te Wairoa. Toha Rahurahu has reserved some of the land, one area being 997 acres, in the township of Te Wairoa. The boundaries are on the outskirts of Te Wairoa township out towards the ocean where a marker pole has been placed. These are noted on the map included with this letter. Another section of land was offered for sale but the payment has not yet been made. That is because Toha Rahurahu has agreed to sell the remaining land to Pereneka Tatana for more than what the Government has offered for it. The agreement is as follows; Pereneka Tatana has sought to purchase the land which Toha Rahurahu has yet to relinquish. Upon the arrival of the money he will pay the Government the correct amount. Further, upon the arrival of this, Toha agrees to legally change ownership over to Pereneka Tatana and to sign the Deed register. Once Toha has signed the Deed Pereneka Tatana agrees to pay Toha (no amount written here) pounds.
