Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Nov. 4th . . . Fair wind, passed Turanga and the Mahia. Off the point of the Mahia we passed a rock a few feet under water, under our lee. It lay about 4 miles north east of the southern point of the head and about 5 miles E by N of the southern end of the island off the point. Felt thankful to the Lord for guiding me safely through these unsurveyed seas.
