Instructions for vessels part 2

This is page two and three of the Order with instructions for all vessels visiting NZ. The second page again reiterates that the local "Natives" (Maori) are not to be carried off "without first obtaining the permission of the Chief or Chiefs of the District". Vessels were also not to land or discharge any sailors without permission. Any breaches of these conditions were to be prosecuted with "utmost vigour of the Law" in NSW or Britain. The third page notes that the Maori Chiefs Dewaterra, Shungee and Kora Kora were "invested with Power and authority" and were to "receive due obedience from all Persons". NRS 897 [4/1730 pp328-9]
