The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 32
Changes in the representation having taken place since the last Session of the Fifth Parliament of New Zealand closed, and additional documentary and other evidence in reference to the writer's claim having turned up, he deems it right to place a second statement of the material facts before the Honorable Members of the Legislative Council and Legislative Assembly.
The writer disclaims any party or personal spirit, and does so under the belief that a collective body of English gentleman will not sanction injustice to an individual upon gounds of expediency or upon technical considerations of law; but will entertain the subject in an equitable point of view.
The writer asserts that he has been robbed of his property by a gross fraud, perpetrated on and permitted by Her Majesty's Commissioner, at Coromandel, on the 8th June, 1844, which no time can bar. The case will continually rise and hang like a dark cloud, casting a gloom shadow over the protecting shield of the Crown and on the pages of New Zealand history, until dispelled by justice.
Auckland, May, 1876.
