Petition of Heta Hungahunga on the subject of certain lands at Waipawa, in the Province of Hawke's Bay

Waipawa, 26th August, 1871

Waipawa, 26th August, 1871.

This is a statement respecting what Mr. McLean said when the land at Waipukurau was sold to the Queen.

Mr. McLean said that, if the land were ceded, he would give us a portion out of the lands of the Queen.

Now I wish to see the fulfilment of what that man said. I have, therefore, asked the Assembly to see whether anything can be done with regard to Mr. McLean's statement made before all of us at the time of the sale of Waipukurau. I now ask that the land for me may be decided upon, so that Mr. McLean's word may be fulfilled.

Heta Hungahunga.
