Prefatory Notes

[Note added by Bob O'Brien as transcriber:]

One foolscap length, half width marble board covered notebook written in by Hutchin. This notebook perhaps would have become available once the Tereora Boarding School had come into being after 1893. Legibility was an issue in transcription. The general nature of the content suggests that they were written by Hutchin in the early part of his missionary work in the Hervey (Cook) Islands.
