The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Rare Volume


page break


To preserve the history of an important movement among the Native tribes of this country, and also to furnish the friends of Christian Missions with correct information on the bearing of that movement, upon the social and religious progress of the Maori race, are the objects of the following pages. The information given has been obtained by personal intercourse with the Natives, and the addresses are published from notes taken at the time of delivery. It is hoped that the frank expression of Native views contained in those addresses, literally translated, will furnish the public with the means of ascertaining the opinions of the Native tribes on the subjects that are now occupying the Native mind, and disturbing the amity that has so long existed between the races.
