Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1876.

Report on Petition of Arihi te Nahu

Report on Petition of Arihi te Nahu.

The petitioner states that Mr. Henry Robert Russell is endeavouring to get possession of her land at Te Aute, in the Province of Hawke's Bay, alleging that he had purchased it from petitioner. The petitioner however alleges that she sold some land properly to Mr. Kinross, and that £1,700 which Mr. Russell gave her, or rather expended on costs of legal proceedings in Wellington, was not in payment for land, but to induce petitioner to stay with Mr. Russell, and not to go to other Europeans.

I am directed to report as follows:—The Committee regret that the time at their disposal has not been sufficient to enable them to make such inquiries as would justify them in reporting an opinion on the subject-matter of this petition.
