Historical Notes: See: Blackley, Roger. "Albin Martin" (Auckland City Art Gallery, 1988) p.60 'While on his Matamata estate in Janury 1870, Firth heard ... Te Kooti Rikirangi was in the mountains opposite. Firth's "friendly natives" fled to the Waikato settlements, while his sons were sent to Cambridge. The next day, Firth met Te Kooti at Tamihana's monument, accompanied by two chiefs and an interpreter. Te Kooti told him "he was weary of fighting and that if Government would let him alone he would fight no more", but that he would never surrender.'
