Historical Notes: W F Gordon attended a meeting at Parihaka in 1880. Te Whiti requested that no likenesses be taken, but Gordon did not want to waste the opportunity, so, during the proceedings, sketched a likeness of the prophet on his shirtsleeve. He later re-drew this, filling in remembered details. It was said to be a good likeness. Source of infotrmation: ATL Pam 1927, Parihaka Meeting House.
