Description
Preface: STRANGE it must appear that the account of perhaps the most celebrated and, certainly to the English nation, the most momentous voyage of discovery that has ever taken place?for it practically gave birth to the great Australasian Colonies?has never before been given to the world in the very words of its great leader. It has fallen out in this wise.
