Inscriptions: Inscribed - Recto - bottom right: [Title] / see over; Verso - top centre: Note. This crater is on the eastern slope of the larger crater on Hawkins Hill, near the Tamiki at Otahuhu. It has discharged its lava towards the eastward. The [appearance?] of the wall of the crater is that which would result from a basin being for a time filled with melted matter cooling on the top and at the edges and which suddenly found vent. There are other places in the Auckland district where similar appearances exist as at the Lake, North Shore, and the Grotto, Onehunga - both craters. C.H. / 20/1/68
