C/NZ/MEL. The two boxes of Melanesian files consist almost entirely of the private correspondence of John Coleridge Patteson. Consecrated the first missionary bishop of Melanesia in 1861, he died in 1871 at the hands of the inhabitants of Nukapu in the Solomon Islands, apparently in reprisal for the abduction of fellow islanders by Europeans some months earlier. In addition to a number of printed tracts and some mid-20th century letters from a descendant of Patteson, there is also correspondence by C. Wilson, one of Patteson's successors as Bishop of Melanesia, with H. Montgomery, Bishop of Tasmania and later Secretary of the SPG.
