A bibliography of writing by Māori in English
"From Kaheke, Son of a Chief at Kaikohi, a Candidate for Baptism." An Account of New Zealand and of The Church Missionary Society’s Mission in the Northern Island. William Yate. Shannon, Ire.: Irish UP, 1970. First edition London 1835. Second edition London, 1835. 253-254.
In this letter to Yate, Kaheke expresses that his heart is ‘very dark and sad; and the reason is, because God is not there.’ He wonders if baptism might bring him closer to ‘the presence of the Saviour.’ Notes by Yate on this and other letters are cited under the reference to Wahanga.
