Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 356 of 1800.—Petition of Retreat Tapsell and 2 Others

No. 356 of 1800.—Petition of Retreat Tapsell and 2 Others.

Petitioners state that they had asked Government to return to them a portion of Kaikokop u Block but had received no reply. They ask that the promises of Sir Donald McLean and Mr. Sheehan should be carried out.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the letter referred to by petitioners was replied to on 8th June, 1880, about a week after receipt; that it seems Government have always acted towards the Tapsell family liberally; and the Committee does not think there is any title on the part of the petitioners to the land referred to, though there seems to have been some indefinite promises. It has no recommendation to make.

28th August, 1880.
