Notes

  • Dedication: For John Green Tamata Creek, 1897
  • Epigraph: 'There appear to be some very peculiar people in this country, Monckton', remarked the Governor at breakfast. 'Very true', I said, 'and when you, Sir, have completed your term of service here, you will think as I do, that the whole country is a weird compound of comic opera and tragedy, with a narrow margin between them'. C. A. W. Monckton.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording.
