No. 271 of 1882.—Petition of Poharia Meinata te Hara.
Petitioner states that she has claims at Waikato for land on account of her mother, though the land had been confiscated. She asks for fifty acres for herself and children.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That Government, having made inquiries into the petitioner's claim, does not consider it well founded. The Committee, having no other evidence before it, has no recommendation to make.
No. 271 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Poharia Meinata te Hara.
E Ki ana te kai-pitihana e pa ana ia ki etahi whenua i Waikato i runga i te whaitaketanga o tana whaea, kua riro i te raupatu. E tono ana ia kia hoatu he 50 eka mona me ana tamariki.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Kua whiriwhiria ano e te Kawanatanga nga kereme o te kai-pitihana a kaore hoki i kitea e whaitake ana ia. Kaore he korero hou kia tae mai ki te Komiti, no reira ka kore he kupu a te Komiti.
