THE KAWHIA TREATY
This is the only "official"
government issued and pre-signed document ever intended to be signed at Manukau,
Waikato Heads and Kawhia. It was carried by William Cornwallis Symonds, who failed
to get it to Reverend Robert Maunsell in time for his meeting before 1500 Maori
at Waikato Heads. It was signed at Manukau, Kawhia and further southward.
