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

§ 58

[i roto i te reo Māori]

§ 58.

One word more to the Maori Magistrates. You are at the stern of the canoe, and the straightness of its course depends upon your steering. Let the just Law of England be your compass, to point out the path for you. Let the Law be honoured by you, and its precepts receive all respect. The Pakeha Magistrate will direct and instruct you. You will always receive honour and support from the Governor, and the Pakehas, as well as from all the well intentioned Maories, in the faithful discharge of your duties.
