The Right Rev. Bishop Selwyn to the Chief Commissioner.
I have the honour to request that you will lay before His Excellency the Governor the Crown grant, which, I understand, has been already prepared, for the school estate at Ahuriri, and that you will furnish such certificates as may be necessary to comply with the requisitions of the Native Reserves Act, section 17.
I nave, &c.,
G. A. New Zealand,Mr. Commissioner McLean.
P.S.—The Rev. Samuel Williams is already in undisputed possession of the above estate, and has stocked it with a flock of sheep for the endowment of the Industrial School.
