IN THE MATTER OF the Enquiry into New-
foundland Territorial Rights on the Labrador.

District of Labrador, Nain, to wit :
I, ABRAM FINGER, at present of Nain aforesaid, make oath and say as follows :
I was born on the Labrador, and have lived at Nain all my life and my father before me. I am forty-three years of age. I have hunted and fished since I was ten years of age going in over one hundred miles into the interior. I have been in the interior almost as much as I have been in Nain, spending part of the winter and part of the spring in there. I have always lived under the laws of Newfoundland and have always recognized the Governor and Government of Newfoundland. I have never had anything to do with the laws of Canada or Quebec, and do not know anything about them. I claim to be a subject of Newfoundland and nobody from any other country has ever interfered with me or objected.
