Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1868 Excerpt: ... ever and ever. This is the sign of making peace, my coming into the presence of my fighting friend, General Carey." In June the native portion of the contingent garrisoning Pipiriki was withdrawn, to act against Weraroa.

The Governor, however, did not approach the gate of the pa without gaining some knowledge by doing so; whilst standing there he perceived at the back of the pa a ridge, and also that the fortifications stood on the termination of it, with lofty and precipitous sides. When he retired to rest that night, and thought over the events of the day, it suddenly struck him this ridge was the road to the pa, and the outlet for them to escape by in case of surprise--a general precaution in native warfare. He thought i...
