THE History of the New Zealand Mission is so full of matter of the deepest interest, that the writer of this volume feels more strongly even than in former instances, how imperfect is the view conveyed by the present sketch.
Again, too, she has to regret, as in the case of "Abbeokuta," the necessity she has been under of recording details of so revolting a character, though she has touched upon them as lightly and as briefly as she could. They serve however to set forth in the strongest light what the natural heart is capable of when men from even the indirect restraint of Christianity, and thus the more to magnify the power and grace of God.
Through the kindness of the authorities of the British Museum, she has been permitted to make use of some sketches from the pencil of Sir George Grey; for which she would take this opportunity of offering her sincere thanks.
