My dear Samuel Moroka
I cannot find time to come to you. I have great deal of business here for us. We know it is you are the great son of Moroka. Sepinare we do not know him he came when he was a … child he is not the son of Moroka, he is the son of Tlala. It is not his inheritance. Let them despute with Montsioa about any inheritance Samuel the son of Moroka the younger brother of Sehunelo it is he who is the inheritor of the kingdom of our Seconana custim. He (i.e. Sepinare) cannot dispute the inheritance with the son of Moroka. But Sehunelo is dead. He was born the inheritor of the kingdom. As far as we know now that that one (i.e. Sepinare) he is … a wolf. He is a wild dog, for you know that a wild dog sees a man’s things and he steals them as a matter of course. Such is with Sepinare. But if he is seeking an inheritance let him ask it there in Montsioa’s country for the sons of Tlala are together there. I greet you Morolong and this people. I am the great chief of the Maralong.
