Evening Post 30 October 1905
The Government has now completed the purchase from the Mudgway Land Company and taken over 447 sections of the Mudgway Block, which consists of rich level land adapted for close settlement, having been cropped and used as a dairy farm for a long number of years. The amount paid is about £30,000. It is stated that adjoining subdivisions have sold as high as 50 per cent, above the price paid for this block. The negotiations for purchase have been rather protracted, but in accepting the price agreed on (sic) the directors of the company are said to have been influenced by it being a cash transaction instead of on the long terms usual in land sales. The acquisition of this property, in addition to the 120 sections previously acquired on the south side of Jackson-street, should mean a substantial increase in the population of Petone. The Mudgway Block extends from White''s Line (the boundary of the Hntt and Petone) to Heretaunga-street. The negotiations for the sale were en- trusted by the Mudgway Land Company to Messrs. Dwan Bros, and Mr. Henry Savage, who originally secured the land and formed the company.
