Copy of letter, His Excellency the Governor to T. H. Smith:—

I wish to mention that Colonel Carey sent me a copy of your letter to him regarding the error I had fallen into in issuing such instructions as I did for treating all the natives on the Western side of the harbour of Tauranga as enemies, seizing their crops, cattle, etc. I feel very much obliged to you for the fearless and honourable way in which you did your duty on this occasion, thereby preventing me from being the cause of bringing much misery upon many innocent people.

Faithfully yours,



25th January, 1864.
