At Cakobau's request, British consul Pritchard prepared a formal deed of cession, offering to cede Fiji to Britain. Preitchard promptly brought the request to Britain. This detailed correspondence includes instructions to Captain Smyth to report "whether it would be expedient that Her Majesty's Government shgould accept the offer". Smyths reports give extensive details on the group with a fine report by Dr Berthold Seeman, commissioned to study the flora and report on the possibility of exploiting the vegatable products. Smyth advised against acceptance of the offer, a view he later admitted as being a mistake and Pritchard was dismissed and discredited. A very clean copy. N° de ref. de la librería 153405
