Further Papers Relative to Native Affairs

[Translation.]

[Translation.]

Auckland,August 19, 1859..

Friend Hira Pure,—

Greeting. Your letter in which you desire that a map of your land surveyed by Mr. Fairburn should be sealed has been received. The Governor has seen your words. The Governor says that if you desire a Crown Grant to be given to you, this cannot be done, as it would not be in accordance with the Law to give Crown Grants for lands which have not been ceded to the Queen, that is, for lands over which the Native Title has not been extinguished. But do you talk with Mr. Henry Kemp in order that it may be clearly understood what it is that you wish.

From your friend,

Smith.

To Hira Pure,
Kaikohe, Bay of Islands.
