No. 8 of 1882.—Petition of Hori Tauroa.
Petitioner states that a sum of £200 was paid to the children of Kaihau for the canoe" Tokiatapiri," whilst he had got nothing. He says he was entitled to a part of the price, and prays it may be paid to him.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the Government has fairly met all just claims in regard to this canoe, and the matter ought not to be reopened.
No. 8 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Hori Tauroa.
E Ki ana te kai-pitihana e £200 nga moni i utua ki nga tamariki a Kaihau mo tetahi waka mo "Tokiatapiri" na kaore rawa tetahi moni i riro i a ia. E ki ana ia e tika ana kia riro i a ia tetahi wahi o aua moni na he inoi tenei nana kia utua atu te wahi ki a ia.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Kua whakaritea e te Kawanatanga nga tono tika katoa mo taua waka, a me kaua e whakapuaretia ano tenei korero.
