"The Presbyterian Church of Otago has not been unmindful of the obligation laid upon her to preach the Gospel to the heathern. Her first efforts in that direction were naturally put forth on behalf of the Maoris, the aborigines of New Zealand. This work has been prosecuted amidst various vicissitudes with a tolerable measure of suiccess, first upon the Middle Island, but latterly on Stewart Island, on which the greater number of the Maoris now reside. In the year 1868 a Mission was organised for the benefit of the Chinese, some thousands of whom, attracted by the fame of the gold-fields, were then scattered over the mining centres in the province." - pages 240-241.
