Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Nov. 17th . . . Lord's Day. Rose early in the morning and after a sweet season of prayer went to Mr. William's tent. Had prayers and breakfasted there as usual. He then started to a Pa about 3 miles distant. I remained in the Pa. The natives assembled and George, a Ngapuhi native, read prayers and gave a good discourse. We then had school and I was much delighted with the attention of the natives and more especially with the earnestness and beauty with which the native Christian enforced on his countrymen the blessedness of receiving and believing the glorious truths of the Gospel.
