All unambiguous end-of-line hyphens have been removed, and the trailing part of a word has been joined to the preceding line. Every effort has been made to preserve the Māori macron using unicode.

Some keywords in the header are a local Electronic Text Centre scheme to aid in establishing analytical groupings.

Craigielinn is attributed to F. E. Renwick on the title page. Frances Elizabeth Renwick (d.1898) was the wife of politician, miner, and novelist Vincent Pyke. T. M. Hocken's Bibliography of New Zealand Literature suggests that Pyke in fact wrote the novel, using his wife's name as a pseudonym—'Written in the Scotch dialect by Pyke, whose wife's maiden name was Renwick' (355). Hocken's supposition is accepted by Bagnall and the compilers of the Australian Dictionary of Biography.
