Death of Poharama

Another old and well-known chief named Poharama died on Monday at Moturoa. Several days before he died he told relatives that he knew he should not live long, and requested that they would take him from Ratapihipihi to his old home at Moturoa, which was accordingly done. The old chief was known as a staunch and faithful friend of the Europeans during the troubled times. Latterly he had become quite an infatuated believer in Te Whiti.
