WILLIAMS, JOHN BROWN. - The New Zealand journal 1842-1844. Edited with an account of his life by Robert W. Kenny.

Title: The New Zealand journal 1842-1844. Edited with an account of his life by Robert W. Kenny.
Description: Salem, Peabody Museum, 1956. Cloth. With folding map and 7 plates. XII,120 pp.'Except when Williams is obsessed with sin and punishment, his Journal makes entertaining and historically valuable reading for the picture it gives of a frontier society, an oboriginal society and the world in which both whites and Maoris lived. Williams appears as a somewhat chauvinistic Yankee, strongly anti-British, and an ardent believer in using the United States Navy to further the commercial interests of her citizens'.
