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. For the rest of her life Agnes Greer treasured these notes in a tiny envelope, which she marked ‘My own beloved Henrys / notes, during the engagement / of Te Ranga he wrote them / 21st. of June 1864.’ They were retained in the family.
