8th June 1905

Mr H.M. Stowell (Hare Hongi)
Native Interpreter,
219 Willis St,

Dear Mr Stowell,

A very old friend of mine, writes me about the subject of ancient Maori Mokos. To give you a clear idea of his request, I have enclosed herein a copy of his letter, and sketch. If you can give me any reliable information on the point, I shall consider it a favour, but will be pleased to remunerate you for any time that you may devote to the subject.

With kind rememorances to yourself and Mrs Stowell.

I remain,
Yours faithfully,
H.E. Partridge

P.S. I have added several new pictures to my collection, which I hope you will call and inspect on your next visit to Auckland.
