Respecting the origin of these islands there would appear to be some confusion in the dates, which it is difficult to reconcile with each other; it is, I conceive, impossible to decide whether this depends upon an error of our author himself, or of his transcribers.
5 July 25th, U.C. 771; A.C. 19.
6 U.C. 628; A.C. 125.
