Abstract of the Wainui Population.

Should this report and the selection of land I have made be approved of, it will be necessary to employ a surveyor to cut the new lines, and I beg to suggest that an attested copy of the plan of each district should be furnished to the Natives, along with a copy of the census I have taken (containing the names of every man, woman, and child), which would form a kind of Title Deed, and would prevent disputes as to ownership or claims by interlopers in future.
In conclusion, I beg to say that I had much pleasure in co-operating with Mr. Charles Heaphy, the gentleman deputed by the New Zealand Company to act with me in this duty.
I have, &c.,
The Hon. the Colonial Secretary, Wellington.
