Excerpt from A Visit to the South Seas, in the U. S. Ship Vincennes, During the Years 1829 and 1830: With Notices of Brazil, Peru, Manilla, the Cape of Good Hope, and St. Helena
In reference to the improvement among the Sandwich Islands, the information in Mr. Stewart's volume is ample and decisive; and though less dis tinct, in regard to the South Sea Islands, to the character and beneficial exertions of the mission aries, it is equally satisfactory. The evidence Of this does not, however, rest on the testimony Of Mr. Stewart. On this subject, others, whose testi mony in favour Of missions their calumniators will not attempt to impugn, have given the most un equivocal declaration of their entire approval, in addition to the evidence which I have recently presented before the public, I am happy to insert another, which appears in the Missionary Chronicle, and is equally honourable to the integrity and can'dour of the writer, and the character of the missionaries.
