SURREY PiILLS. ... . ' V
[To the Editor,
Sir, —I am a returned soldier, having been back several months. I am also a resident of this County 3 and desire to remain so if I possibly can. I am also in quest of land, to which the Act : says I am entitled. It is my desire to obtain a farm suitable for raising sheep, as I understand that branch of farming ;better than any other. When . I read Mr W. Nos worthy's statement, at a, deputation in . Ashburton to the Minister of ; Lands "that a- portion of Surrey Hills' Estate would be offered to - the Government," I thought my luck was in, and that the portion referred to by Mr. Nosworthy of this desirable property would soon, "bo thrown open in ballot. Some tiWßfSfa.s elapsed since that deputation, ami apparently no further action has teen taken. Will Mr Nosworthy now explain what he meant by his statement to the Minister, and when it is "likely to -materialise ? I can assure him there will be ito v lack of soldier applicants foT the block, and , Stirrev Hills will hot be in danger of ;■ remaining long on Government hands without being, taken ap, ■ . .-' , SAPPER,.
