I, William Wakefield, the Principal Agent of the New Zealand Company, do undertake to select 150,000 acres to which the Crown's right of pre-emption has been waived in favour of the said Company, from the block of land specified in the deed to which this is annexed, as soon as such land shall have been surveyed, leaving the unappropriated residue to be dealt with in such manner as His Excellency the Governor shall deem fit.
