James Chapman-Taylor builds a large house in Havelock North, New Zealand which was to become known as Whare Ra (Maori for House of the Sun).


Dr. Felkin then travelled there, assisted by Dr. Westcott, by having appointed him Inspector of the Australasian Colleges of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia.


Dr. Felkin stayed there for three months and, during that time, the Smaragdum Thalasses Temple #49 was established.
