The Secretary for Public Works, to Alexander Mackay, Esq., Native Commissioner.
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of 2nd ultimo, addressed to the Chief Surveyor, recommending the reservation of a site of an old fishing pah at Wairewa, in exchange for Native reserve No. 890, also at Little river. In reply, I am directed to inform you that the Government fully concurs in your recommendation, and would suggest the publication of a notice in the New Zealand Gazette similar to that of the 20th June, 1868, reserving No. 890, stating that the proposed reserve was made in lieu of the former.
I have, &c.,
Secretary for Public Works.
Alexander Mackay, Esq., Native Commissioner.
