Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Nov. 21st . . . We slept on board and went early to a flat point of land on the island of Kapiti. Saw a few natives, met some Englishmen at a Whaling Station belonging to Mr. Jones. Several of them with the foreman at their head treated us with great insolence. May the Lord have mercy on them and give them light. Visited another party who were civil and well behaved. In the afternoon went and saw Rauparaha. Purpose leaving in the morning— had some interesting conversation with a young American.
