The great question here, is Kawhia; and I am glad, whatever may occur in that place, that we are perfectly free from interference in any way. You have paid no money for land; and I have not surveyed any. It will, therefore, he difficult to trace the "he" to us. Waikato talk of assembling in a body at Auckland to sell some of Kawhia; but they don't expect to succeed; and after that, the difficulty, if any, will arise between themselves.
