No. 41 of 1882.—Petition of Ihaka te Hamanu and 2 Others.
Petitioners complain that they were deceived by members of their tribe in reference to the land of Tamahere, and were not sent for in 1868, when it was adjudicated upon.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the petitioner Ihaka Te Hamanu, received compensation for the land referred to; and that if the others did not, it was only because they did not appear in 1870, as they ought to have done, when Mr. Marshall went to Cambridge to settle the matter.
No. 41 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Ihaka te Hamanu me etahi atu tokorua.
E Ki ana nga kai pitihana he mea tinihanga ratou e etahi o to ratou iwi mo te whenua o Tamahere, kaore hoki i tukua he panui ki a ratou i te whakawakanga a te kooti i taua whenua i te tau 1868.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
I puta ano he whakaritenga utu ki a Ihaka Hamanu tetahi o nga kai-pitihana mo taua whenua, na ko etahi o nga kai-pitihana kaore i utua engari na ratou hoki kaore i tae ake i te takiwa tika i te tau 1870, i te haerenga o Maiho (Mr. Marshall) ki Kemureti ki te whakaoti i taua mea.
