An Inglewood correspondent writes“ A party of nurveyora in theNgatimaru County have come across a young woman who is recognised by a scar across her breast as being a white child of a Lepperton settler, who was lost in the bush in January, 1874, and who at the time was supposed to have been stolen by the Maoris. The surveyors who have brought her in say that she is married to a Maori, and at present cannot speak a word of English. Rumor has it that when she was stolen she was conveyed to the Hawke’s Bay district in order to elude the search parties. Her two brothers have gone to see if they can identify her.” WELLINGTON.
