Ohinemuri Regional History Journal 27, September 1983

by C.W. MALCOLM B.A. (NZ), Dip.Tch.

The Journals are a most valuable asset for future historians recording the story of our district. In the nature of things it is inevitable that slips and errors should creep in from time to time. So that errors do not become compounded, I have compiled the following list of corrections. It can be used to insert alterations in the Journals.
