No. 249 of 1882.—Petition of Henare and D. T. Hanotu.
Petitioners state that they are owners of land called One, at Waihopai, Southland, consisting of 176 acres; that it has been rendered useless to them by encroachment of sand, caused by rabbits, and that they have no other land. They further state that it is eight years since they were compelled to leave this reserve. They pray that they may receive another reserve in exchange for One.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the land referred to being useless, Government be recommended to take into favourable consideration the prayer of the petitioners.
