Correspondence between W. Nero and Mr. Fox

Correspondence between W. Nero and Mr. Fox.


"O, friend ! O, Mr. Fox ! This is the cause of my thoughts which caused me to speak of our going to Wm. Thompson and the chiefs of Waikato, namely, page 31 their desire to come towards life (meaning to leave off fighting), also to give up their guns, cartouche-boxes, and other munitions of war. The only reason for delaying (carrying into execution) these thoughts is, fear lest, after having given up their weapons, Wm. Thompson and Matutaera should be seized and hung. That is their fear.

"Therefore I reflected, and said, Let me be let to go to inspect these words, that I may see the truth of their words, or the falsity. If I see that it is true (as stated), I will let you know.

"Enough from your friend, (Signed)

"Wi Nero."
