Colonial Secretary "Boyd"

The first page of a three page account of the rescue of the survivors of the "Boyd", given on board the "City of Edinburgh" in the Bay of Plenty on 6 January 1810. This first page begins with a warning for "All matters of ships frequenting New Zealand are directed to be careful in not admitting many natives on board as they may be cut off in a moment of surprise." The account lays out the finding of "the miserable remains of the ship Boyd" and the Crew who were mostly "killed and eaten". With Matengaro's "handsome conduct" four survivors were rescued.
