Excerpt from Memoir of the Late Captain Peter Heywood, R. N: With Extracts From His Diaries and Correspondence

To the Mutiny of the Bounty the author owes more than general acknowledgment. With a few verbal alterations, the general arrangement and con necting links of the correspondence which took place previous to the trial have been adopted from that volume. It appeared unnecessary to attempt an improvement. But in the course of transcription for the press, some passages have escaped that refer ence to their source which ought to have been oh served, particularly the introduction of the'quota tion from Lord Byron, with the preceding remarks in the narration of the shipwreck of the Pandora, which appeared too apt to be torn from their asso ciation and the observations on Christian's motives for detaining Heywood, with the note, pp. 150 152. Yet in this part of the Memoir some addi tions have been made to the correspondence from that family volume to which the historian of the Mutiny of the Bounty acknowledges his obligations.
