Excerpt from In the New Hebrides: Reminiscences of Missionary Life and Work, Especially on the Island of Aneityum, From 1850 Till 1877 The literature connected with the New Hebrides is somewhat copious. We may pass over the "Memorial of Mendana to the King of Spain," which has been often quoted, more or less fully. The portion of Captain Cook's Voyages referring to the New Hebrides, published more than a century ago, is written in all the clear, graphic, and truthful style of the great navigator. When in 1850 I first sailed along the group, I read Cook's narrative in the largo edition of his Voyages, and the accounts seemed as fresh and truth-like as if they had been written only a twelvemonth before. Captain (now Admiral) Erskine's admirable "Journal" refers only briefly to the New Hebrides; it has reference chiefly to the eastern islands. The second volume of the Rev. William Gill's fascinating work, entitled "Gems from the Coral Islands," contains some interesting details of mission work on the New Hebrides.
