Further Papers relative to the Native Insurrection [Correspondence relating to the fall of Rangiriri and Ngāruawāhia]



Auckland, November 30th, 1863.

Pene Pukewhau,—

Your letter has arrived, and the matter has been carefully considered. This is the reply to you, and also to all the people of Ngaruawahia.

The Governor will hold no communication whatever with you whilst you continue in arms; but give up all your guns, your powder, and all your arms, to the Governor: then only will a way of communication be open for you; at present there is none. That is the word.

From your friend

W. Fox.
