Excerpt from Among the Maoris: Or Daybreak in New Zealand, a Record of the Labours of Samuel Marsden, Bishop Selwyn, and Others

But the purpose of this present work is with the religious aspect of New Zealand almost exclusively, and to reproduce from a past of less than a century, some scenes of early labour for Christ, and the labourers themselves. Amongst these, two figures stand out in bold relief - Samuel Marsden, the pioneer missionary, and George Augustus Selwyn, the first Bishop.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 164 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Excerpt from Among the Maoris: Or Daybreak in New Zealand, a Record of the Labours of Samuel Marsden, Bishop Selwyn, and OthersWhen Macaulay depicted the New Zealander some day sitting on the ruins of London Bridge, to meditate upon the mouldering relics of St. Pauls, he clearly anticipated for that intelligent native a future he was never to see. For the Maori race is a fast vanishing quantity, and long before old age sets in upon the Thames, the tattooed original of New Zealand will have become as rare as the dodo. To many, this rapid declension of a fine race will be a source of regret; to still more it will bring keener disappointment to remember that its extinction, which some think inevitable, has been hastened by a policy hardly creditable to the English people.
