Excerpt from Narrative of a Tour Through Hawaii, or Owhyhee: With Remarks on the History, Traditions, Manners, Customs, and Language, of the Inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands
The greater part of the following narrative was written in the Sandwich Islands, from notes taken b... y my fellow travellers and myself, while engaged in the tour it describes. At my request, a member of the American Mission was associated in preparing it; but circumstances requiring his presence in another island, the task devolved on myself alone.
The journal, when prepared, was submitted to most of the missionaries, and approved. As the chief object of the tour, - a survey of the religious state of the inhabitants of the island, - was one in which the American Society had an equal interest with the London Missionary Society, with which I am connected, a copy of the journal approved in the islands, was left by me in America, and I believe will be published by them.
