Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1891, No. 2.

[No. 70, 1891, Sess. II.—Petition of Rewi Maniapoto.]

No. 70, 1891, Sess. II.—Petition of Rewi Maniapoto.

Petitioner prays that the trusts of Crown grant No. 20782, of 26th March, 1881, under which he holds Allotment 112, in Township of Kihihiki, Auckland District, be altered, so that after his death a home may be provided for his wife (Te Rohu) and her children.

I am directed to report that, the petitioner having been one of the most prominent figures in the history of New Zealand, and that during his later years he used his influence in promoting the administration of the country, the Government would, in the opinion of this Committee, be doing an act of justice, and will pay a just tribute to Rewi Maniapoto, if they give effect to the prayer of the petition. The Committee therefore recommend this petition to the consideration of the Government.

9th July, 1891.

[Translation.]
No. 70, 1891, Sess. II.—Pukapuka-inoi a Rewi Maniapoto.

E Inoi ana te kai-pitihana kia whakarereketia nga tikanga o te tiaki o te Karaunakaraati No. 20782 o te 26 o nga ra o Maehe, 1881, mo te rota 112 i roto i te taone o Kihikihi i te Takiwa o Akarana. E hiahia ana ia kia whakarereketia kia ahei ai te hanga he whare mo tona wahine mo te Rohu me ana tamariki i muri iho i tona matenga.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: No te mea he tangata rongo nui no Niu Tireni te kaipitihana, a no te mea i tahuri ia i roto i enei tau ki te tuku i tona mana hei whakahaere i nga mahi o te koroni. E whakaaro ana te Komiti ka tika rawa te Kawanatanga mehemea ka whakaaetia te tono a te kai-pitihana a hei mea mihi ma te Kawanatanga ki aia. No reira ka tono te Komiti kia tukua tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia whiriwhiria e ratou.
