The Superintendent has totally failed in removing the strange Natives from the valley, and they are now diligently employed in putting in their crops of potaotes. A week ago, his Honor, upon the report of Mr. Clifford, that the Natives were burning the bush they had cut down, in breach of their agreement with the Superintendent not to cultivate any fresh land there, and had committed some outrages on some of the small Settlers up the valley, went thither, with Mr. Sub-Protector Forsaith, to talk to them once more. After being thoroughly convinced by their language and demeanour, which were most insulting to him, that they intended to persist in their course, his Honor returned to Wellington, and made known that the Natives had no intention of leaving the valley in March next, as they had promised to do" - page 3-4, letter from Colonel Wakefield, Principal Agent, to the Secretary of the New Zealand Company. ; 8vo
