The Laws of England, Compiled and translated into the Māori language.

§ 29

[i roto i te reo Māori]

§ 29.

This law does not, nor does the Law in any case, respect persons. All men before the Law are alike. There is one Law for all, Maori or Pakeha, white skin or black. And it is false to say that by submitting to the Law any man is humiliated, whether Pakeha or Maori. On the contrary, by submitting to Law, and by upholding the Law, a man protects his own dignity, for it is the Law which recognises and secures his rights. The Law is his safeguard by whose protection he will be secure of his life, liberty, and happiness.
