Excerpt from The Hand-Book for New Zealand: Consisting of the Most Recent Information, Compiled for the Use of Intending Colonists

The following extracts from the earliest publication of the Association, called A Sketch of the Plan which has been formed for the Establishment of the Canter bury Settlement, and of the views on which that Plan is founded, will be of the greatest interest to all members of the Church of England, and especially to intending Colonists.

It has now become a truism to say that, as a nation, we do not take, indeed never have taken, a proper view of our duties and responsibilities as the founders of Colonies. The ancients sent out a full representation of the parent state, a complete segment of society, to become the germ of a new nation. They carried with them their gods, their rites, their festivals; nothing was left behind that could be moved, of all that the heart and eye of an exile misses. Under the influence of such consolations for the loss of home, men of all classes yielded to the natural feeling of restlessness and desire for scope and room which is produced by the pressure of population in an old country, a feeling not only excusable but laudable, and evidently implanted by Providence for the purpose of carrying out the scheme by which the earth is replenished and subdued.
