On ne peut manquer d'être frappé - à la lecture du Journal de Morrison - par deux caractéristiques : la première est cet extraordinaire don d'observation chez un homme que rien n'avait préparé à cela ; la seconde est cette indulgence qu'il manifeste vis-à-vis des Tahitiens lorsque la description de leurs mœurs l'amène à nous décrire ce qui à nos yeux, pourrait passer pour des défauts. Ceux qui, par goût, ont vécu ou vivent à Tahiti seront particulièrement sensibles à cette faiblesse et se demanderont comme nous l'avons fait, si Morrison n'est pas le premier Blanc à avoir subi cet envoûtement auquel tant de nous ont succombé, pour la plus grande joie de leur existence

After the Bounty : a sailor's account of the mutiny and life in the South Seas by James Morrison( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Morrison did not actively participate in the Bounty insurrection, he had remained with Fletcher Christian's party, which was enough evidence for condemnation once back in England. While imprisoned, Morrison began composing his journal. He was released--King George III granted a pardon--and soon after wrote the second half of the journal, which he filled with detailed descriptions of Tahitian life, culture, and natural history. Morrison's journal is an invaluable resource for naval historians and an enthralling tale for the general reader."--Jacket

The "Journal" was composed before the trial 3 or 4 years after the events it narrates, probably from notes taken at the time of these events, though this is a supposition
