"In Reply To A Solemn Day In 1858." Te Waa Me Ihaka Waitara-Amos [Te Waa and Ihaka Waitara-Amos]. Waikato Times 4 Feb. 1986. Rpt. in Tu Tangata 29 (Apr./May 1986): 59.
In this letter Te Waa and Ihaka Waitara-Amos take issue with a written statement by Tahana Wahanui in the Waitomo News in November 1985 concerning the naming of the King Country which Wahanui contends took place during a meeting in 1858 between Governor Robert Fitzroy, Colonel Thomas Gore, George Grey and Tawhiao. Te Waa and Ihaka Waitara-Amos dispute the 1858 date for various reasons: Tawhiao was not yet king and Fitzroy returned to England in 1853. They contend however that in 1878 there was a historic meeting between Tawhiao and Sir George Grey when land partitioning did take place.
