James Reed. Sunday (Raoul) Island

This is an interesting reference from the Poverty Bay Herald 1914 to James Reed (My G, G, Grandfather)
This is in regard to the dispute of the ownership of Raoul Island. Reeds were there first but the Bells laid claim.
I don't know the outcome except that no island, to my knowledge, ended up in our family.
