  • Description

    Regarding Hone Heke's letter to the Governor, brought to Henry Williams by an officer of the North Star. Henry Williams along with Mr Davis, Mr Burrows, and Mr Kemp were gathering the following day to read and discuss the letters contents. Marianne writes that Hekes insistence of having Henry Williams opinion on his dealings with the Governor had caused her husband to come under fire from both Maori and Pakeha.

    Marianne goes on to write of their domestic and private lives during the Northern War and to describe the state of Waimate.
