An Epitome of Official Documents Relative to Native Affairs and Land Purchases in the North Island of New Zealand

Memorandum by the Governor

Memorandum by the Governor.

In their memorandum of the 20th instant, Ministers request the Governor to inform them whether, upon any occasion, they have offered him advice which might fairly appear to have been dictated by any disregard for the true interests of the Natives, or any undue desire to obtain land, even for legitimate purposes of sale or colonization. In reply, the Governor has to state that Ministers have not, in his opinion, at any time tendered to him advice which was either directly or indirectly open to such a construction as they have alluded to in their memorandum.

G. Grey.

1st April, 1865.
