Letter from William Thompson to His Excellency the Governor relative to terms of peace


[ko te tohutoro i roto i te reo Māori]


Te Rapa, July 13th, 1861.

To the Heads of the Runanga, to Mr. Bell and Mr. Fox,—

Friends, Wiremu Maihi has come to me, and has talked with me and my heart has become clear by his words which were gently given; this is why I desire to come to Auckland. The right time for me to come is what i now tell you. Let there be a second meeting called by the Governor like the Kohimara, that I may attend.

If you wish me to come, do you send Maihi back quickly to come for me. Enough.


Wiremu Tamihana,
