Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Nov. 8th . . . Wind not favourable for leaving this place. Not at all well during the night and forenoon, my chest very painful. In the afternoon, went on shore for two hours. Found some plants which do not grow at the northern part of the Island. Came on board somewhat better. Believe this is not Port Nicholson but that that harbour lies round the next point. This is however a beautiful port.
