Abstract:

The principal item on the microfilm is a journal describing a voyage made by the Revs. John Williams and Robert Bourne from Raiatea to Aitutaki, Mangaia, Atiu, Mitiaro, Mauke and Rarotonga in July-Aug. 1823, to propagate the Gospel. The journal appears to have been written, or written up, by Bourne for himself and Williams jointly, as Williams is referred to by name several times but Bourne is not. The document here microfilmed is a copy of the original made with what appears to have been a primitive type of carbon paper. There is a subscription in ink by Williams on the last page. Some passages in the journal are the same or similar to those in Williams' A narrative of missionary enterprises in the South Sea Islands, London, 1837. Other items on the microfilm are: a letter from Williams to his family from Raiatea, dated Nov. 9, 1822.; a copy of a letter from Tamatoa, chief of Raiatea, to the President of the United States, dated Raiatea, Sept. 10, 1829.; a letter from Williams to A. Birnie, dated Raiatea, Feb. 27, 1830; a letter from Williams to his sister Mary, dated Portsea, June 17, 1836; a letter from Williams to his sister, dated Cape Town, July 14, 1836 and a copy of an extract from the minutes of a meeting of the London Missionary Society in Samoa on Mar. 30, 1840, concerning news of the murder of Williams in the New Hebrides and his associate James Harris.
