Copy of a Letter from Mr. J. E. FitzGerald to the Hon. the Minister for Native Affairs.
I beg to enclose the originals of all the letters which have been sent to me by Natives in reference to the pending purchase of the Manawatu Block.
Most of these letters have been published in the public press.
It is my intention to move that they be laid on the table of the House.
I take the opportunity of stating that I have not answered any of these letters, and have had no communication with the Natives on the subject.
I have, &c.,
The Hon. the Minister for Native Affairs, &c.
