An Epitome of Official Documents Relative to Native Affairs and Land Purchases in the North Island of New Zealand

Treaty of Waitahgi

Treaty of Waitahgi

I think it only necessary to add, in reference to the Natives, that I have in the most public manner, in the strongest terms, and upon repeated occasions, assured them that. I had been instructed by Her Majesty most honourably and scrupulously to fulfil the terms of the Treaty of Waitangi; that their welfare and happiness was an object of the most lively concern to the Queen, and that it would be my most earnest desire to carry out Her Majesty's most gracious wishes in their favour; and I am satisfied that these declarations upon my part have produced a favourable impression upon many of the most influential of the chiefs.

I have, &c.,

G. Grey.

The Right Hon. Lord Stanley, &c.
