Frederick Huth Jackson’s Diary

Posted in Texts by chrisfremantle on June 26, 2012

Frederick Huth Jackson (1863-1921)

Frederick Huth Jackson kept a diary of his visit to New Zealand in 1883-84.  Frederick Huth Jackson Diary 1883 lo res.

He was aged 20 at the time.

The first half survives, and was transcribed by Richard Fremantle in the early 70s.  This covers his own journey to New Zealand on the SS Ionic and his travels through the North and South Islands.  The second half, describing his time escorting Baron Hübner, is sadly missing.
