Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Dec. 6th . . . Felt rather better this morning. Left my tent about 11 and sat with Watanui and his son and wife in the warm sunshine. Returned and sat in my tent reading, etc., for some hours. Went to evening service, very few natives assembled. Felt cold in returning, which was soon followed by violent pain. Took about 49 drops of laudanum and went to bed.
