The ship then sailed to Malacca where Bruce went ashore. While he was off the boat the General Wellesley sailed to Penang with his wife. At Penang Captain Dalrymple traded Atahoe to another European, apparently as a servant, but Bruce followed her, and with the Governor’s help eventually got her back. After a sojourn in Bengal, Bruce and Atahoe (who was by now pregnant) boarded a ship to return to New Zealand, and during the voyage Bruce delivered his ‘princess of New Zealand’ of a fine daughter.

The next morning, when the boat was sent to pick him up, he was found stripped naked on the beach. Despite his tattoos, the Pakeha Maori had not fooled the Fijians. According to Bruce, after this Captain Dalrymple turned him and his wife out of their cabin, so that they were forced to sleep on the sandalwood logs. The ship was constantly becalmed and the food ran out; Bruce said that the white people on board, driven near to starvation, had made a plan to kill and eat the Lascar sailors when a providential wind carried them to Solo Island instead.
