"Keate's narrative of the shipwreck of the Antelope off the hitherto
unexplored Pelew Islands in 1783 includes a full and interesting
description of the manners and customs of the islanders. Constructing
a small ship from the wreckage, the crew managed to reach Macao, and
eventually arrived safely in England. They took with them Prince Lee Boo,
one of the King's sons, but he unfortunately died of smallpox."
