Save Money On Flights

On Our Walks, We Were Unmolested, (Mr F. Relates Also The Assault Of Dr Sparrman) But Their Conduct Was Bolder And More Unconcerned Than That Of The Taheitians, And The Explosion, As Well As The Effects Of Our Fowling-Pieces, Did Not Strike Them With Fear And Astonishment.

These differences were certainly owing to the various treatment which the people of both islands had met with on the part of Europeans.

There were, however, not wanting instances of hospitality and good-will even here." - G.F.

SECTION XIII.

Arrival at, and Departure of the Ships from, Ulietea: With an Account of what happened there, and of Oedidee, one of the Natives, coming away in the Resolution.

The chief was no sooner gone, than we made sail for Ulietea (where I intended to stop a few days). Arriving off the harbour of Ohamaneno at the close of the day, we spent the night making short boards. It was dark, but we were sufficiently guided by the fishers lights on the reefs and shores of the isles. The next morning, after making a few trips, we gained the entrance of the harbour; and, as the wind blew directly out, I sent a boat to lie in soundings, that we might know when to anchor. As soon as the signal was made by her, we borrowed close to the south point of the channel; and, with our sails set, shooting within the boat, we anchored in seventeen fathoms water. We then carried out anchors and hawsers, to warp in by; and, as soon as the Resolution was out of the way, the Adventure came up in like manner, and warped in by the Resolution.
