Diary Entry of Bishop Selwyn, 9th Feb 1844 "Early in the morning, entered Jacob's River, bumping slightly on the bar, it being nearly low water. Anchored off the English settlement, a whaling station, and went on shore. Assembled the English, 14 or 15 in number and explained to them the object of my coming. The sight of two married English women was pleasant to me, as I had not seen a country woman since I left Otakau." Transcribed by Corey Woodw@rd
