I have the honour to transmit for your information the copy of a Proclamation I have issued, with the advice of my Responsible Advisers, announcing to the Natives of New Zealand the desire of the Government to regard the war in New Zealand as ended, and calling upon all chiefs and tribes to aid me in putting a stop to all acts of violence for the future.
I have, &c.,
The Right Hon. Edward Cardwell, M.P.
