Klappentext

Excerpt from A Visit to the South Seas, in the U. States Ship Vincennes, During the Years 1829 and 1830, Vol. 2 of 2: Including Notices of Brazil, Peru, Manilla, the Cape of Good Hope, and St. Helena A Cluster of low islands and coral reefs lies about midway, in a direct line, between the Washington and Georgian groups, rendering the navigation at that point somewhat intricate and dangerous. From a supposition, that we might be obliged to lie to at night, when in that vicinity, we did not expect to accomplish the passage from Nukuhiva to Tahiti, a distance of seven hundred miles, in much less time than a week. In this, however, we were favorably disappointed. The trade wind proved unusually fine; and having made the first of the low islands early on the 14 th instant, the second day from Taiohae, we succeeded in running by the whole chain the same evening, and, with an open sea before us, hastened on our course with unchecked speed. Five of the low islands, the Tikoas, the Palliser, and Elizabeth island, were passed by us within two or three miles of their shores. Elevated a few feet only above the water, scarce in sight at a distance of six and eight miles, and but scantily tufted with groves of the cocoa-nut and pandanus, they present a strong contrast to the loftiness and magnificent scenery of the groups between which they lie.
