We have taken the pah, notes from the Te Ranga battlefield (1864).

Caption

In January 2015 Mike Dottridge, a descendant of Henry Harpur Greer (1821-1886), donated Greer's original notes to his wife Agnes to Tauranga City Libraries. The notes were written in 1864 from the Te Ranga battlefield. This one was written after the battle and reads; ‘Dear Agnes we / have taken the / pah & killed heaps of / Maoris, our men / are in hot pursuit / not many of our / people hit / yrs HHG / Thank God’.
