Surrender of the New Zealand Chief, William Thompson, to Brigadier-General Carey, 1865. Creator: Unknown

Surrender of the New Zealand Chief, William Thompson, to Brigadier-General Carey, 1865. Engraving of a sketch by Major Tupper. 'Thompson, with twenty-five followers, came galloping forward. Directly he saw the Brigadier he threw himself off his horse...He then placed his taiaha (a club or mace of carved green-stone) at the General's feet, saying he hoped he would accept it as his gun, in token of submission. The General accepted Thompson's submission, and then shook hands with him and the other chiefs...Thompson...signed the following covenant: [translation.] "We consent that the laws of the Queen be laws for the King (Maori), to be a protection for us all for ever and ever. This is the sign of making peace, my coming into the presence of my fighting friend,* General Carey". (Signed) William Thompson, Te Rewiti, Hone, Riki, Rihia, Parata. Tamahaere, May 27, 1865. (Signed) George J. Carey, Brigadier General. George Graham." William Thompson stands about 5 ft. 7 in. high; he has a very careworn expression, and is slightly tattooed: his eye is small but most intelligent. He seemed completely crestfallen when he gave in his submission; but, after the covenant was signed, it was evident that his mind was much relieved'. From "Illustrated London News", 1865
