Marsden and the New Zealand Mission. Sixteen Letters. Edited P Harvard-Williams. With and Introduction by WP Morrell. 1961 1st edition. University of Otago Press, Dunedin in association with AH and AW Reed


Introduction about the letters; Samuel Marsden; and recruitment for the NZ Mission

These letters are deposited in the Hocken Library, Dunedin. They are reproduced in this booklet, with editorial notes

13 of the letters, written 1808-1811, were written by Samuel Marsden and three by William Hall, a carpenter and joiner from Carlisle recruited for the Mission, who accompanied Marsden on the voyage from England in 1809

These letters give us an insight into the thinking and conditions of the times and the men themselves
Some Maori who had travelled from NZ to Sydney and England are mentioned; as is the burning of the Boyd

Old photos show a repro of an engraving of Marsden and of his handwriting
