Papers Relative to the Native Meeting Held at Peria, in October, 1862
Maketu, November 5th, 1862
To Ngatirangiwewehi, Friends, The letter containing your laws has arrived, that is, the laws of Tamehana's Runanga. Friends, hearken to what we see in your laws. Three of your things are to be effected by war, and four by love: Friends, The four things are soiled (or stained) I by the three. We shall remain here.
From Te Waiatua,
From all the Ngatitutanekai and Ngatikereru.
