Captain Fitz Roy commands the Beagle, the ship upon which Charles Darwin takes his trip around the world. While in the vicinity of the Strait of Magellen, Captain Fitz Roy returns three natives to their homes on Tierra del Fuego. He had, at his own expense, educated the natives while they stayed in England.
