Excerpt from The Private Journal of Captain G. F. Lyon, of H. M. S. Hecla: During the Recent Voyage of Discovery Under Captain Parry; With a Map and Plates
Being sent with the other journals to the Admiralty, in obedience to Captain Parry's instructions, my friend Mr. Barrow, in te turning it to me, advised me strongly to publish it, on account of the number of little anecdotes it contained relative to the habits and disposition of a people entirely separated from the rest of the world, and with whom we had for so great a length of time kept up an intimate and constant intercourse.
