Inhabitants of Ouvéa, New Caledonia. 'They told us that the island from whence they came was a day's sail to the east of our moorings, and that the name of it was Aouvea; it was doubtless the island of Beaupré that they meant' ('An Account of A Voyage in search of La Perouse...Under the Command of Rear-Admiral Bruni d'Entrecasteaux', from an edition of which this plate is taken).
