The Aborigines of New Zealand: Two Lectures


page break


The following pages contain the substance of two Lectures which were delivered before the members of the Auckland Mechanics' Institute, and are published at the request of several friends. Those who heard the Lectures delivered will find a trifling deviation from the original arrangement, some of the matter being now introduced in connexion with topics to which it appears more nearly related: excepting the addition of two or three notes this is the only alteration. They have been prepared amidst a multiplicity of engagements, and pretend to furnish nothing beyond a few ungarnished “Extracts from Maori History.”

Auckland, July 28th, 1851.
