Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Oct. 30th . . . Passed the day in making various notes of matters which I thought might be useful. Intend starting tomorrow. Messrs. Williams, Brown and Clarke returned this evening from Maketu. They were nearly making peace. The Waikato natives were well disposed but the officious forwardness of the Ware Kura lads hindered it by representing to the Maketu natives that the others were afraid.
