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



'Not by the direct path, that means, traveller's fare, short commons. Let us take the circuitous route, that means abundance, or the portion of the stayer at home.'

No more, oh friend. It is for you to interpret the meaning of these proverbs. There are more to com. Enough.

From the Runanga Maori.

The Governor.
