Sir,

In obedience to your direction, I have the honour to report that since I was instructed to arrange with the natives of Waiwakaiho, that the question of boundary of the FitzRoy purchase, affecting Mr. Smart's farm, should await the Inspector's return to the settlement, neither party to interfere in any way with the land in dispute; the natives have broken their promise by ploughing up a portion of it.

On enquiry, I learn from Honi Ropiha, (the native Assessor), that he had failed to dissuade Wiremu te Rangi from this step, when he was about to commence ploughing on the 14th. inst., he being a mere instrument in the hands of Henere te Ware (Te Puni's son), Manihera, (a Wellington Assessor), and Patara; all of whom the natives say are here to oppose the sale of land North of Waiwakaiho.

I have the honour to be Sir,
Your most obedient, humble servant (Signed)
H. Halse
Sergt. To:- Henry King Esq. Resident Magistrate.
