Papers Relative to the Native Meeting Held at Peria, in October, 1862

Translation. — Hakiriwhi Tirauoterangi To Mr. Halse, Auckland

Hakiriwhi Tirauoterangi To Mr. Halse, Auckland.

Uruhau, October 29th, 1862.

I send to inform you of what took place at this meeting.

The first thing was, that the road should not cross Mangatawhiri; the second, that no steamer should run on the Waikato, but if the Governor had one thought that of the Maoris page 18would be good. The third was, that Waitara should be investigated according to law. All the Chiefs of Waikato consented that the Governor should come to Waikato, to Tamahere; that is, that there should be a meeting at Tamahere of all the Chiefs of this island, in order that they may see the Governor and tell him their thoughts, that he may hear ours and we his.

Friend Mr. Halse,—Some men are probably going there (to Auckland) as messengers to the Governor, to hear his word and to know whether he will consent to come, that the men may know.

From your loving friend,

Te Hakariwhi Tirauoterangi.

To Mr. Halse,
