SPEECHES OF GOVERNOR SIR GEORGE GREY AND THE WAIKATO CHIEFS AT THE MEETING HELD AT KOHANGA, DECEMBER 1861.

Kohanga, 12th December. Waata Kukutai (Ngatitipa): Welcome, Governor. Welcome to Waikato. Wel- come to the house which is injured, to the path which is overgrown, to the fence which is broken down. Welcome to the scattered sheep. The sheep have no shep- herd, and so they are scattered abroad. It was I who fetched you from the forests of Taane. Welcome to your old resting places. The roads are filled up. Come ashore. Enough. Aihipene Kaihau (Ngatiteata): Here are my fathers and younger brethren carrying the treasure into the bouse. The tikanga is with you. Enough; it has appeared in your presence. The Governor to Herewini: Will you answer a question if I ask it ? Te Herewini (Ngatitamaoho): Ask it. "KIA WHAKAKOTAHITIA TE PAKEHA ME TE MAORI"
