Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Oct 21st . . . Engaged the greater part of the day in making preparations for my departure. Took leave of all friends and embarked on board the Columbine at 7 o'clock together with the Revd. H. Williams, Mr. Wilson, Mr. Clarke and Mr. Stack. Sailed out of the Bay of Islands with a fair wind, soon began to feel a little sea-sick. Retired to bed at about 12 o'clock after remaining on deck till I was very cold.
