Hau writes how on the previous Sabbath, all the baptised Māori of Waimate had celebrated the Supper of the Lord. He also speaks of new things growing in the land such as wheat; he parallels this with new things growing in their hearts. He notes that some of the great chiefs are coming to believe and that there is a great interest by the writer and others to go "to the White People to read the Bible, and to hear form them the straight things contained in it".
