The picture most New Zealanders have of him is a big bearded run holder, holding off hungry miners with a loaded revolver as he carefully rationed out inadequate supplies of precious flour."

DJ sl rubbed to edges, front ep minor age toned due to newspaper clipping laid in. #New Zealand History#. Near Fine/Near Fine.
