35. About the AUTHOR
"Rising at dawn, we crowded the ships rails, anxious to get a first glimpse of the land which was to be our new home"............................"
"The sea was calm as we sailed into Port Nicholson on that warm sunlit December morning in 1840 and soon shelters and shacks could be seen dotted along the waterfront.........
Presently, native canoes came paddling out from the shore - there must have been a score or more coming to greet us. Our long journey from England was coming to an end."

The NZ Company ship "London" sailed with 200 immigrants aboard from Gravesend, England on the 10th August and arrived on the 12th December, 1840, a voyage of 121 days.
