Shark Bay, western Australia, September 1818.
Journal de Rose, pl.IX.
'Exchanges had already taken place, and the prudence of M.Pellion had prevented the fatal revolt, to which a first interview might have led. The savages had been presented with necklaces of glass beads, looking glasses, and little knives: they had sent clubs and assegais; and this species of barter appeared to please them much. ... All of these exchanges were made with a certain mistrust on the part of the savages: they watched us as dangerous enemies, and were continually pointing to the ship, exclaiming, ayerkadé, ayerkadé (go away, go away)'.
