jtlmunt Lacler Farewell to Pitcairn, the Yankee Must Be on Her Way The islanders are crowding into their boats for the trip back to their lonely home. They have loaded the Yankee's dinghy (foreground) with the"finest fruit in the world" in gratitude for help in getting their year's supply of miro wood from Henderson Island, near by, andfor bringing many needed supplies and staples. Each family donated a share of the watermelons, mangoes, papayas, bananas, pineapples, and squash. As they rowed offinto thedark, these happy descendants of the Bounty mutineers sang hymns of farewell (page 44).
