A reference to an experience of a Captain Barclay, recorded in the Australian Review of Reviews, where Barclay saw sacred stone figures on an island in New Zealand. Subsequently he saw similar figures in the Easter Islands and in Peru. This is seen by Adams as evidence that the Polynesians came from the Americas.
