Aa Exciting Adventure With a Maori
Chieftain
Mr Becke the author of Notes
From My South Sea Log tells of his
tutor who seemed to him the most
heroic man In the world because he
had been through the first Maori war
and because of an adventure which
there befell him and which Is given as
follows
Poor Guy such was the tutors name
was a lieutenant and he and two
companies were captured by the
Maoris They were taken Inside the
Stockade and the chief taking up one
of the captured seamens cutlasses felt
Its edge and then fixed his keen eyes
oa the young officers face
I shall not harm these two men of
yours he said slowly They shall go
safely back to your lines If lie
paused and a grim smile distorted hi
tattooed face
If what asked Guy calmly
If you will stretch out your right
hand so that I may cut It off at the
wrist swiftly no further harm shall
come to you and you too shall go
freeWill
Will you keep your word
Aye I Te Atua Wera am no liar
Guy nodded quietly took off his coat
and held out his left hand
Strike he said
The chief again smiled Thou art
as cunning as thou art brave I said
the right hand
Guy let fall his left and extended his
right arm Te Atua Wera stepped
back a pace raised the cutlass and
struck the point of it into the ground
Then he bent forward and gravely
rubbed noses with Guy
Go he said but come back no
more So Guy and the two sailors
were allowed to return to Despards
lines unharmed
