[Here my Maketu court of the 1st June, 1880]
Here my Maketu court of the 1st June, 1880, is entirely omitted from the "Return" J 80/2411.
This Court sat by the written instructions of Judge Fenton on 1st June, 1880. It continued, exclusive of adjournments (due to sickness of the Assessor and the clashing of the page 39 Court with the Cambridge Court) until the 26th September. The sitting days were about 86. The work accomplished was: Orders of memorial, 27; orders of succession, 9; dismissed because already adjudicated at 'previous Land Courts, 10; dismissed, no surveys, no jurisdiction, no appearance, duplicates claims, claimants deceased, &c., 92; adjourned in consequence of passing of Act of 1880, 66: total claims disposed of, being all upon the list, 202. Why has this Court, and this work been omitted from Judge Fenton's clandestine return?
