December 11, 1834. Articles of Treaty and Agreement between the Governor of the

Colony of the Cape of Good Hope, on the one part, and Andries Waterboer, Chief of the Griquas, on the other part.

Art. I. The Chief of the Griquas engages to be the faithful friend and ally of the colony.

II. He engages to preserve order in his territory ; to restrain and punish any attempt to violate the peace of the frontier of the colony by any people living within his country; and to seize and send back to the colonial authorities any criminals or fugitives from the colony.

III. He also engages to protect that portion of the colonial border opposite to his own, viz., the line from Keis, on the Orange River, along that river and the New Gariep, to Ramah, against all enemies and marauders from the interior who may attempt to pass through his territory

IV. He also engages to assist the colonial authorities in any

enterprise which they may find it necessary to undertake for the recovery of property, or the apprehending of banditti, who, having been pursued from the colony, may have taken refuge in the bush and islands or other fastnesses along the above line of those rivers.

V. And, generally, he engages to apprise the colonial authorities of any intended predatory or hostile attempts against the colony which may come to his knowledge, and to co-operate cordially, and in all good faith, with the Colonial Government, in preserving peace and extending civilization among the native tribes.

In consequence of the above engagements, the Governor, upon his part, engages :

1. That there shall be duly paid to the Chief Waterboer, in such periodical payments as may be most convenient to him, a gratuity of 1001. sterling per annum, to defray the expenses which the execution of his aforesaid engagements may incur.

2. That he shall be supplied with arms and ammunition, (say 200 muskets, with a reasonable quantity in proportion of ammunition), or more of the latter, as occasion may require.

3. That 501. sterling a-year shall be placed in the hands of the mission stationed at Griqua Town, in aid of the school, for the education of the native children of the Chief's people, and especially for their instruction in the English language.

To facilitate a due observance of these mutual engagements, and to secure the benefits which they are intended to afford to both parties, the Governor will appoint an agent, to reside at Griqua Town, whom the Chief Waterboer engages to receive and protect, and with whom he will confidentially communicate upon all matters mutually concerning his territory and the colony. For which purpose the Governor now accordingly appoints the Rev. P. Wright, chief of the mission stationed at Griqua Town, to be his confidential agent at Griqua Town.

This done at the Government House in Cape Town, this 11th day of December, in the year of Our Lord 1834. (L.S.) A. WATERBOER. (L.S.) B. D'URBAN, Governor.
