Description

CMS tract; illustrative border surrounding 2 quatrains, titled 'New Zealand' extolling the charms of the landscape and concluding that 'sweeter ... rises the song from holy lips / By blood did Jesus come to save us ...' etc. The verses are surrounded by a decorative border with images of Maori life (and one, mistakenly of a Pacific hut) derived from well-known published images from the 1830s and 1840s, after Augustus Earle and George French Angas. The image at the top is of a mission school in an open-fronted wharenui, with carved barge-boards, showing seated and standing Maori with books in their hands. All are in native dress. The poem is the 5th verse of H. W. Fox's 50th Jubilee Hymn (for the C. M. S.) of 1849.
