7 Dev 1876 Evening News, Sydney: Extract from Select Committee reports of Queensland Legislative Assembly: "I was in the Jason, and we anchored in Havannah Harbour" (just west of this location, North Efate, Vanuatu).
"The captain went ashore and offered 16s a head for men. We got seven fighting men, and went to Aurora Island, which Bishop Pattison had visited. Captain Coates, dressed up as a missionary, distributed the leaves of a nautical almanack as tracts. I played the flute to entice the men on board, and we captured thirty-three men, who were put below and the hatches closed. We got one hundred and thirty labourers altogether. Twenty-seven were left at Crosby's plantation, Sandwich, whilst one hundred and three were taken on to Queensland.' From the Report of Captain Mackham, of H.M.S Bosario, a brief quotation:- 'Some of these kidnappers go so far as to paint their vessels so as to resemble as much as possible the schooners employed by the different missions. On more than one occasion, on the arrival off an island frequented by the late Bishop Pattison, a boat has been sent ashore with a white ruffian, dressed up in a black coat and hat and a pair of spectacles . . . whose duty it was to tell the natives that their friends the good Bishop had arrived, but was too unwell to come on shore to see them. Would his dear friends go on board and pay him a visit? The result may easily be imagined.'
