To Captain George Pearson
Commanding the ship Cashmere
Sir,- We the undersigned, passengers on board the ship Cashmere, having by
the blessing of Divine Providence arrived safely in the Harbour of Auckland,
take this opportunity, before we separate, of returning you our most sincere
thanks for the uniform kindess, impartial attention and watchful care with
which you have acted during a four months' voyage, to every person under
your charge. The duties of a master of a passenger ship, numbering 103
individutals, are most responsible; they are arduous, difficult, and
sometimes unpleasant to perform. We found that whilst you insisted on
having order and good conduct on board, you were always most anxious to
promote the happiness, comfort and amusement of your passengers. Your
kindness to us will live long in our recollections, and you may feel
assured, that to whatever part of the world your duties may call you, our
best wishes will attend you:
