"The purpose of the two voyages was the survey of the southern coasts of South America with scientific observation and the collection of natural history specimens ... Charles Dawin was naturalist on the Beagle ... on the return passage the Beagle spent 10 days of December 1835 in the Bay of Islands, the officers visiting Kororareka, Kerikeri, Waimate, etc. (v 2., chapters xxiv-xxv, p. [564]-618). Fitzroy's observations on the Maoris and the mission establishment are more detailed and objective than Darwin's almost emotional rejection of what he saw. The appendix to v. 2, a separate volume, contains Busby's statement about De Thierry and the consequential Declaration of Independence of the 'sovereign chiefs', Bourke's instructions to him and Thomas McDonnell's appointment as 'Additional British Resident', p. 193-202"--Bagnall.
