[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]
Nov. 13th . . . Determined to leave the Columbine and go overland to Kapiti. The Revd. Henry Williams and I started with about 10 natives in the morning. We landed at a small Pa on Richard's (a native from Waimate) ground and drew a plan of it. Saw two native chapels which have been lately built but which are standing on ground which is now sold— went from thence to another Pa and after some conversation with the natives, we had prayers and Mr. Williams addressed them and then went to bed.
