John Fraser applied for a loan on 7 December 1919 to buy cattle. It was approved on 12 April 1920 . His block, ‘Warrenfels’, Ti-tree Creek, consisted of 2100 acres. It was a Crown Lease 19/9 and was located in the Country of Drake, Parish of Drake, Land District of Casino. 
Inspector Nickless reported negatively about the holding – ‘It would need some days and more men to muster. The country is very difficult and the area large’.  By 26 September 1923 John Fraser was in some financial trouble as there were demands by the Department for overdues of interest and principal repayments amounting to £197.5.6. In October 1923 he asked for an extension of time to pay what was due. On 10 March 1926 he again made a similar request, ‘I am not in a position to pay as there was dry spell during 1926’.
John Fraser had paid off his loan by 13 March 1935.
