I Can Only Recall One Other Instance, That Of Ratu Kandavu Levu On His Small Island Of Bau, And Then It Was Only In The Native House Where He Entertained European Guests.

[4] - These circumstances were a matter of common knowledge, at the time of my visit, all over Fiji.

On the other hand it must be remembered that Ratu Lala did not think he was doing any harm, for the woman, having done wrong, required punishing, and naturally South Sea Island ideas of punishment, inherited from past generations, differ radically from those of Europeans.

[5] - PTYCHOSPERMA sp.

[6] - PRITCHARDIA PACIFICA.

[7] - ELATERIDAE

[8] - Pron.: longa-longa.

[9] - Pronounced "Samothe."

[10] - "b" pronounced "mb."

[11] - R. Shelford's Report.

[12] - From a Singapore Paper.

[13] - Some of these names that I got were "kudong" "blimbing," "mawang," "sima" "lakat," "kamayan," "nika," "esu," "kubal," "padalai" and "rambai."

[14] - These were the heights given me by the Malays.
