The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 73

On Board the "Hinemoa."

The Illustration on page 67 represents Lord Glasgow and party grouped on the deck of the Hinemoa, during the recent cruise to the islands to the south of New Zealand—Auckland, Campbell, and Antipodes Islands—and the Chatham Islands. This is memorable as being the first occasion on which the more remote of these islands were visited by a direct representative of Her Majesty, namely, His Excellency the Earl of Glasgow, Governor of New Zealand. The excursion was of great scientific as well as general interest, though, unfortunately, the weather during the cruise was extremely unfavourable.
