Memorandum by James Mackay, Esq., Civil Commissioner.
The accompanying tracing shows an error in the boundary of the Kaniwhaniwha block of land purchased by Mr. Turton on behalf of the Government from W. Nero and the Raglan Natives. It appears that about 486 acres have been taken from W. Barton and the Ngatitemainu Tribe. I believe the boundary is not quite correct yet. I now propose that a Crown grant should be given to W. Barton and his people for any land which may have been wrongfully taken from them by the error in the cutting of the line. On receipt of instructions in this matter I will proceed to complete the question.
James Mackay, Jun.29th March, 1866.
