TREATY DRAFTS

 

 



 
 

ROUGH DRAFT OF THE TREATY PAGE 8
This is, again, Freeman's handwriting. Hobson has a member of his staff, George Cooper, take all rough notes, completed so far, ashore to British Resident James Busby. This occurs on about the 2nd of February. Busby considers the draft notes to be quite unsuitable, in their present form, to fulfil the required task and volunteers to rewrite them. Note: The typical "Britannia Figurine" watermark oval, vaguely decernable in the centre of the page.
