In this letter dated 8 November 1875, Tawhai writes a tribute to Penetana Papahurihia who died on 3 November 1875. He states that Papahuihia was a ‘great magician, and descended from a race of magicians’ and that initially when the missionaries came he ‘clung to his witchcraft’ but was later converted to Christianity.
