    The introduction relates of the mission station: 'A large piece of ground has been fenced in, and a garden brought under cultivation; fruit-trees and vegetables from New South Wales have been planted; and cattle, poultry, &c., have been introduced' (555–56). The extract from Walter Lawry's journal records: 'A cough prevails pretty generally among the natives, which they attribute to our coming among them; and it has recently been proposed, as a remedy for the complaint, to murder us and share out our property' (557).
