"The natives came to the Police Office from Motueka and said the land was their own and that they had spoken to Capt. Wakefield repeatedly and that they had received no payment from the white man for the land. They were told by Brooks the intrepeter that a quantity of land had been chosen for them and if they interrupted the white man from working their land they would be put in prison." Private daily memorandums October 1842
