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.

[Translation.]
No. 138, Sess. II.—Pukapuka-inoi a Hemi Makiwira.

E ki ana te kai-pitihana i hokona e tona matua tetahi whenua i Lucas Creek ia Kapene Hone mo nga moni e £400 pauna, a i muri iho i te matenga o tona matua ka tangohia e te Kawanatanga te whenua a hokona ake. E inoi ana kia whiriwhiria taua take me te whakaputa i tetahi ora mona.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: Me tuku te pitihana a Hemi Makiwira ki te Kawanatanga kia ahei ai ratou te tuku i tetahi patai mo runga i tenei take a ki te kitea he take ta te Kaipitihana ki tetahi whenua me hohoro tonu te hanga i tetahi Ture, ranei, me whakarite ranei i runga i tetahi atu huarahi.
