Summary expansion
The voyage lasted four years, during which time Corney was an eye-witness to the burning and sacking of Monterey. He writes also of the Russian settlements in America, the abortive Russian settlement on Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands, the relations between the Americans and the Russians, and the means and problems of trading with China. The ship itself was, in the end, purchased by King Kamehameha I of Hawaii
