Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1887, No. 2.

No. 138, Sess. II.—Petition of James Maxwell

No. 138, Sess. II.—Petition of James Maxwell.

Petitioner states that a certain block of land near Lucas Creek was purchased by his father from one Captain Stone for £400; that after his father's death the Government took possession of the land and sold it. He prays that inquiry may be made into the matter, and relief afforded to him.

I am directed to report as follows: That the petition of James Maxwell be referred to the Government to make careful inquiry, and if it is found that the petitioner has any claim to any land, immediate steps be taken, by legislation or otherwise, to satisfy it.

16th December, 1887.
